I am an international entrepreneurship consultant and a co-founder of Eloquence. I help small businesses with content writing, video creation, web design, and marketing. I have visited over 60 countries on five continents, I speak a little Japanese, and married my wife, Tricia, in a crumbling German castle.
International entrepreneurship has long been a fascination of mine. In high school, my friends and I would talk and dream of opening a business on a Caribbean island.
It didn’t matter what type of business it was, or even if it would be profitable. All that mattered was continuous sunshine, crystal-clear water, and an endless stream of piña coladas.
Today, my ideas for international entrepreneurship have thankfully evolved to embrace a little more realism. They focus not just on quality of life issues, but also on the realities of running a successful business.
Born in Canada, my family moved to the United States when I was a young lad. After finishing a bachelor’s degree in international business from the University of Nevada, Reno, I joined the business branch of the U.S. Navy — the Supply Corps.
During my service, I earned the Humanitarian Service Award for my logistics work following the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004, and the Meritorious Service Medal for the management of over $25 million dollars’ worth of equipment across 20 different locations in Afghanistan.
In 2010, I met my wife, Tricia, and moved to Germany where she was working for the U.S. government at the time. Here, I earned a master’s degree in international relations from the University of Oklahoma’s campus in the city of Heidelberg.
After completing my program, Tricia and I embarked on a multi-year journey throughout Southeast Asia, India, Europe, and North America. During this excursion, we launched our content strategy firm, Eloquence. In the years since, we’ve helped dozens of clients with their content writing, video creation, web design, and marketing needs.
In 2016, I completed a master’s degree in knowledge-based entrepreneurship from the University of Malta in the Mediterranean. Equipped with the understanding of how businesses are born and successfully cultivated, I now offer consulting services to international entrepreneurs.
I am also a freelance content creator for various publications. My work has been published in Business Insider, International Living, and Roads & Kingdoms.
