I work as a “scribe” at Alongsiders International in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

When I’m not doing that, you may find me puttering around the streets and sidewalks of Phnom Penh on my Suzuki Viva 125 running stoplights and driving on the wrong side of the road like the locals. If you see me in a coffee shop, I’ll be the one drinking decaf and typing and deleting the same line over and over again. If you see me with my family, we might look like this.


The Fam

Or not.

I also work on other projects, usually involving vulnerable children and families, writing and photography. One of those is UnitingforChildren.org – raising awareness about the best practices for the care of orphaned and vulnerable children. 

I have three daughters and a wonderful wife who also works at Alongsiders.  In the old days, as my daughter might say, I grew up in Albuquerque, graduated from Occidental College, worked with youth in inner-city Los Angeles, graduated from the Fuller School of Intercultural Studies, and lived in Japan for nearly ten years.

We have lived in Phnom Penh, Cambodia since 2010.
