I’m a world traveler who is curious about the places I go. I have worked in corporate America, run my own business in the Former Soviet Union in Baku, Azerbaijan, been an ex-pat and a “returnee”.

I’m an observer of life and a journalist at heart.

My passion is discovering the unique characteristics that each culture has and that are worth knowing and sharing.

This blog is a way of not only remembering where I’ve been, but also a way to share the impressions and lessons I think I’ve retained. Some fun, some serious, all good lessons.

I hope you’ll share your impressions and lessons with me as we go. I look forward to chatting with you about the lessons you’ve learned.

And, if you're interested in Communications and Strategy, check out my work on as well.
