I joined the Peace Corps as a Response Volunteer in August 2016 and traded the island of Manhattan for the island of Yap after a long career as a senior executive in marketing communications. The stories of companies and brands and the people behind them were my stock-in-trade for nearly 40 years, but today I tell the stories of the people and culture of the Pacific Region and how they live in the modern world while maintaining their traditional way of life. After my Peace Corps service ended, I stayed on for five years and am now living on Guam, I am a regular contributor to the Pacific Island Times and other regional news media; my writing and photos have also appeared over the years in the New York Times, Pacific Daily News, Verge, Stars & Stripes, NationalGeographic.com/Travel, goworldtravel.com, Transitions Abroad, Wooden Canoe Magazine, Journal for Weavers, Spinners & Dyers, and many others.
