I am writing this blog for high school and college students (but all readers are welcome).

Why me?

You can watch my May 2014 commencement address in Kyrgyzstan to learn about the first 25 years of my life (knitting, sewing, cooking, wood shop, metal shop, typing, drafting, offset press printing, journalism, constitutional law, computer programming, model rockets, various flunky jobs, etc.)

And here is a short video interview with me from 2012 (my 30th college reunion) about some of my experiences at Northwestern University.

I have visited 44 countries (most recent year visited) outside of the USA: Austria (2017), Barbados (2016), Belgium (2017), Bhutan (2015), Botswana (2015), Burma (2015), Cambodia (2015), Canada (2017), China (2017), Costa Rica (2017), Czechia (2017), Denmark (2008), Ecuador (2016), France (2015), Germany (2017), Hong Kong (2014), Iceland (2014), India (2016), Ireland (2009), Israel (2014), Italy (2017), Japan (2014), Kazakhstan (2014), South Korea (2015), Kenya (2017), Kyrgyzstan (2014), Laos (2015), México (2017), Netherlands (2017), New Zealand (2003), Panama (2017), Portugal (2003), Qatar (2017), Saint Lucia (2016), South Africa (2015), Spain (2016), Switzerland (2013), Tanzania (2017), Thailand (2015), United Arab Emirates (2012), United Kingdom (2017), Vietnam (2015), Zambia (2015), and Zimbabwe (2015).
