About Me


My current mission is to understand the world outside my skin (and under it, too).


I am an adventurous father. I love to try new things and explore different cultures. Originally from California, USA, I am currently living in the UAE. I have also lived in Germany and Indonesia. Teaching English literature is what has enabled me to live in various countries and travel.


Photography, exploring new places, biking, traveling, reading, learning new things. I'm up for trying most things. Who knows? I may find a new passion.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love T.S. Eliot and John Donne, but I also like the whimsical aspects of novels like Night Circus. I love superhero movies and Lord of the Rings, but I'm always up for a good action film.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Swam under a mystical rainbow of mist purported to bring good luck near the famed rice terraces of Luzon, Philippines. I have hiked to the rim of an active volcano in Java, Indonesia and gone paragliding over the Himalayas in Nepal.
