Our Story

Christina and I were married in December 2016 in a traditional Dayak ceremony in Jakarta Indonesia. After a honeymoon in Bali, We were confident Indonesia would be our home.

Three months later, it was. I sold all my possessions and left America to join Christina in Jakarta. We have spent much of our time traveling in this part of the world and have become involved in Christina’s Dayak roots.

Our careers were both in publishing, hers as an Editor in Chief and mine as an art director. Our combined experience in mass media is over 50 years. It only makes sense that we would build this website to document our experiences together. The articles are about Travel, culture and Dayak politics.

85% of our traffic is from mobile phones in Indonesia. So, we have tried to make it easy to navigate on a small display. My articles are in English and appear in several categories as well as an English only Category.

As an exclamation point to to this page, I want to say this about my wife, Christina: She graduated from college as a journalist and accepted a job working on a major magazine in Jakarta. In a few short years, she became Editor in Chief. This is remarkable considering she is a Catholic woman in the male-dominated business world of Jakarta. My wife is amazing.
