Mutual Mobile – Hyderabad

It’s no secret that I’ve spent some time in India, but I am frequently asked, “why were you there?” I know that I am better at documenting my weekends and time off, but I don’t just travel the world for fun, I do have a job to get done!...

Bangalore

My trip to Bangalore was rather spontaneous. I’ve made some expat friends in Hyderabad who work with Deloitte, and they travel a lot as a group. Since I am traveling solo in India, they are kind enough to invite me on a few of their weekend excursions. But due...

Agra

Bucket list: check! After an 18-hour drive direct from visiting the Dalai Lama in Dharamshala, I’ve made it to Agra to see the Taj Mahal! There is a Trident Hotel here in Agra, and I was able to arrange a room so that I could freshen up. It was an awesome perk...

I’ve been to 20 out of 215 countries so far! That’s 9.30% of the world!
After a career in the music and live events industry where I traveled the United States with the biggest names in music entertainment, I decided to get back to my roots and dedicate myself to serving humanity.

As a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Kyrgyz Republic, I spent two years working with media outlets and journalists. My primary project involved the utilization of mobile technology with journalists living in rural areas so that they could have a wider voice and better access to information. Their stories are available at kyrgyzmedia.com.

Now living in Austin TX, I continue to support the next generation of journalists as the Executive Director of the Kloop Media Foundation, which supports the Kyrgyz NGO, Kloop Media and their journalism school in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. I am also a part of the Operations Team at Mutual Mobile.
