I have a wide variety of interests and diverse range of experiences I grew up in the rural American mid-west and developed a love of the outdoors, nature, gardening and beekeeping.  After earning my university degree in Political Science I became a Peace Corps volunteer in Southeast Asia.  My Peace Corps experience turned into a lifelong fascination with Asia.  I have traveled extensively throughout the region, and have lived and worked in Mainland China, Thailand and Taiwan. I speak Thai, Lao and Mandarin Chinese in addition to English.  I hold a Masters degree in International Business Management and worked in management positions with several companies both internationally and within the US.   I have also been active in real estate investment, property management and hotel management.  I'm currently seeking employment opportunities in Asia in either hospitality management or with an NGO doing international development work.
My online activities include several rice cooker review related sites - Rice Cooker Fetish and Sanyo Rice Cooker as well as Oyama Rice Cooker.  I also write about Taiwan related issues, learning Chinese and living gluten free.  I continue to develop websites using Wordpress.  A couple of my newest are a site on how to grow longer eyelashes and shipping container house plans.  I also write on Squidoo and have lenses for sale there as well.  You can check out my Squidoo Lenses For Sale here.
