About

During my career I've had a wide variety of jobs, starting as a Deep Sea Diver in the United States Navy before moving on to college. I studied international business when I was in college because I've always been more interested in living and working in foreign countries than visiting them as a tourist. After failing in my attempts to become the next Ronnie Lott or even the next Rudy, I spent a few years at Merrill Lynch before the need to explore got the better of me. Since then I've lived and worked in the United States, South America and Asia. When I'm not writing or immersed in a book, I enjoy scuba diving and training for my next kickboxing match.
