About Me

I hail from the USA originally, have also lived in Japan and Brazil, and I currently reside in Auckland, New Zealand. I am a travel junkie that has, in recent years, got around to visiting four or five continents multiple times per year. I love meeting great people and am obsessed with the steeper learning curve that naturally comes with international travel.

My academic background is in international relations, political science and economics, and although I enjoy reading widely, these are my primary areas of interest (albeit with a good dose of psychology). I am a proud graduate of the Universidad Francisco Marroquín and member of the Mont Pelerin Society — founded in 1947 by FA Hayek, who later went on to win the Nobel Prize in economics.
