Out on a Limb

4 years ago

I sold my house, cars and quit my 20+ year I.T. career to explore the world and follow my dream of working with wild animals. I'm now settled in New Zealand after living in Costa Rica, Panama and Australia.

4 years ago

In 2013 I had just finished teaching English overseas for a year. Without a plan I moved to the Bay Area looking for my next thing. And thats around when I met Pete. 4 years, 3 moves, and a whole lot of adventures later, here I am on one of the biggest adventures of all living in New Zealand. Through AWP, Im excited to share the ups, the downs, and the lessons learned throughout my expat journey.
