John Zada is an author, journalist and photographer based in Toronto, Canada. An interest in adventure travel and remote regions have taken him to some far-flung parts of the world.

His first book, 'In the Valleys of the Noble Beyond: In Search of the Sasquatch', was chosen by Amazon as one of its '100 Best Books of the Year' for 2019.

John's work has appeared in such publications as the Globe & Mail, Toronto Star, The Guardian, The Telegraph, Travel + Leisure, BBC, CBC, Al-Jazeera, New York Post, Explore, Maisonneuve, Montecristo
