I have had the good fortune to work and live in several places around the world. In the last twenty years I have hung my hat in the great cities of Budapest, Cairo, Munich, and San Francisco, and also in stressed locations like Detroit and Brčko, Bosnia & Herzegovina.
My career has been as diverse as the places I’ve lived.At different times I’ve been a CEO, as U.S. diplomat, an entrepreneur, a graduate student, an international business consultant and a logistics manager.
A life of travel has afforded me many adventures. Whether drinking tea with locals in the back streets of Yemen, piloting a ferry in the Adriatic Sea, or getting schooled in table tennis by a 70 year old man in Beijing, the many encounters I have experienced have been far more than this Midwestern small-town boy ever imagined.
The adventure, of which I am most fond, however, is time I spend with my family. Somewhere along the journey, I met Christina, the light of my life. Together with our two kids, we continue to explore the globe.
