I had the good fortune to grow up in Austin, Texas and to go to a fine college in California. I've lived in five different countries over the last dozen years and have been teaching English since 2007.
I've written about diverse topics including international trade, shipping, history, foreign policy, living abroad, and vision care.
I've also owned two businesses--a bar in Ho Chi Minh City and a restaurant in Da Nang--so I'm familiar with a business owner's perspective.
Now I live in Da Nang, Vietnam with my wife and infant son. I love to read, cook, travel, play guitar, and write.

Our topics require a lot of research, which Sam was able to handle, and the articles themselves were expected to be very thorough. Sam rose to the occasion and provided us with exactly what we needed."
