About Me

I have master’s degrees in entrepreneurship and international relations, and I’m a former U.S. naval officer. I speak a little Japanese, married my wife, Tricia, in a crumbling German castle, and I’m a cuisine, culture, and adventure enthusiast.

I have visited over 60 countries on 5 continents.

My work has been published in various publications, including Business Insider, International Living, Roads and Kingdoms, and the Olive Oil Times.

I am originally from the United States and Canada. However, I have lived abroad for 8 years.

My skills include:

  • WordPress and basic HTML
  • Google Adwords and Analytics
  • Final Cut Pro and Motion
  • Microsoft Office and G Suite
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Apple Pages, Numbers, and Keynote

I am enthralled by clean technology, slow travel, and sustainable economic development.

On my YouTube channel, you’ll find Tricia and me sampling new cuisines, discovering the deeper layers of the world’s cultures, and pursuing unforgettable adventures. Here is the channel trailer:
