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 just 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.
I also work on other projects, usually involving vulnerable children and families, writing and/or photography. Or video. One of those is UnitingforChildren.org – which I started to raise 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 in 1989, worked with youth in inner-city Los Angeles, graduated from Fuller School of Intercultural Studies in 1997, and lived in Japan for nearly ten years. We moved to Cambodia in 2010.
