Backstage at the Columbus Zoo

Columbus, Ohio has one of the best zoo’s in the country.  When Jack Hannah inherited the zoo as director in 1978, it was a mess.  But he built it up with his charisma, vision and fantastic fundraising, and even by staying late to help pick up the trash.  What he built extends beyond what you […]

Discover Columbus, a Unique Destination

Columbus is a unique place. First impressions: it’s small & there isn’t much happening. But living here, I’m starting to develop a deeper appreciation for the city.

Belize & The Anatomy Of An Awkward Traveler

I’ve earned my badge for traveling – spending a year abroad in high school as an exchange student; followed by 9 years as an expat in London, where I discovered my now wife from India; and now with her, traveled extensively throughout Europe and India. Oddly though, I’m not a social traveler. Slightly introverted by […]
