I am currently (June 2010 - January 2011) enjoying a six month sabbatical in Singapore. During this time I will continue to stay active posting travel stories, tecnhology news and more via my Facebook, Vimeo, Twitter and Flickr accounts.
A travel blog will be coming online shortly.
I am an award winning New Media Designer who has had the good fortunate to work in both the academic and professional worlds.
