About

I am a writer-blogger based in London.  I left the US in the summer of 2012 with the curiosity to see what it would be like to live in Athens for a year.  I grew up most of my life in America and knew at some point I would leave to “see the world” and live abroad.   Greece is where my family is originally from and it was a great first-stop to be in Athens during a time of social and economic flux and see the birth pangs of a new civic society developing to rebuild the country.  I also did a short-military service, which was very insightful into the inner workings of Greek institutions and the reality of modern culture.

I am writing about various things on this blog: my time in London now, my recent trips backpacking through India and visiting Tokyo for a few weeks.  If you have any comments please get in touch and tell me what you’d like to hear more about.
