I first traveled abroad when I was 16 and I've lived and worked in Togo (as a Peace Corps Volunteer), Iran, and Saudi Arabia. In all, I've been to 45+ countries--many of them for return visits. I retired in 2012 from a faculty position at the University of Pennsylvania where I taught applied linguistics and live at the beach with my partner Dave and our King Charles Cavalier Spaniel, Baci (= Kisses in Italian).
I travel light and love walking and enjoying café life.
