Welcome! My journalism career and curiosity about the world started while working as a copy boy for the Wall Street Journal. I’ve logged over a million miles in my travels across the globe, from Morocco to China, up to the Arctic Circle and across Southern Africa.
I was dragged kicking and screaming onto the web after friends and publishers insisted it was time for me to enter the new millennium by creating a web site. I finally agreed. Although, to be honest, I’d rather be looking at the world than having the world look at me. Regardless, I thank you for being here. I hope you enjoy your visit.
