Author
DAVID BULIT is a Hialeah native, a city within the greater Miami area. He began urban exploring in 2009 after watching a documentary titled Urban Explorers: Into the Darkness, and was fascinated with the stories and places, especially one portion of the film involving the exploration of an abandoned rocket testing facility near Everglades National Park. He took up photography shortly afterwards to share with others the places he has visited, and has since had his work shared with both local and international newspapers and websites. In 2015, he had his first book published titled Lost Miami: Stories and Secrets Behind Magic City Ruins and his previous book, Abandoned Jacksonville: Ruins of the First Coast in 2019.
