An American abroad for years and years who has lived or worked in six countries on three continents, the longest in Germany, where I currently live. I'm a communications professional with 25 years of expertise in a variety of corporate roles, including a broad range of communications disciplines, technical writing and translation, and corporate strategy. Reading and writing are my passions, when I'm not hiking one of the amazing trails in Germany or elsewhere. My motto is "fight the hype" and I enjoy taking a unique, perhaps unorthodox, view of the current topics and trends. I recently published my first business book "The Accidental Change Agent." I've also written a novel, a detective story, a screenplay and several short stories and am looking to take my writing to the next level.
