About the site

Between 2007 and early 2010, I was an American writer living in Southeast Asia, and blog posts traced life in Indonesia’s Aceh province with my wife (a development worker), my travels throughout the region, and finally our year in Singapore, where I was affiliated with Nanyang Technological University. Now, we’re back in the States. All my print journalism is at the Story file. All writing and photos on the site are protected by copyright and cannot be reused without permission.
