The Present

I launched this site in the midst of my “professional halftime,” in Fall 2019. After 20+ years in the corporate world, I took the summer off to invest in my family (last year, we moved back to the States after eight years in China) and to write a book.

As I move out of my professional halftime, I’m excited to embark on my next journey. As of 9/9/2020, the book is available for pre-order and my new job starts at McCann China.
