About Me:
In 1991 I joined the Peace Corps. My Peace Corps service in Guatemala in 1991-92 led to work as a United Nations Volunteer in the first elections in Bosnia and Herzegovina after the Bosnian War. I have since worked elections in 12 other countries. A particular highlight of my international work was managing camps for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in 2002 in Herat, Afghanistan. Development work in Kandahar, Afghanistan also stands out. I have traveled to 53 countries in total. In the U.S. I have worked with FEMA as a reservist for the past twelve-years and have worked on most of the major domestic disasters; currently in a disaster survival assistance management capacity. I continue to both travel and volunteer internationally. As a writer my work has appeared in Transitions Abroad, The Orange County Register, Pakistan Link, Peace Corps Online, International Travel News and various other online and print publications.
