Assignments & Adventures

Every foreign assignment is a one-of-a-kind adventure.  Many adventures, actually.  There are challenges and obstacles, from day-to-day living to unknowable outcomes to project pressures. Still, the rewards are astounding.  The people I work with, the people I help…..they teach me a lot.

Here’s a sampling of some of my assignments, along with a few adventures I've had on each one.

Building in Latvia

I've coined this term to describe the use of development and other types of aid to encourage and support entrepreneurship as a means of economic growth in developing countries.  It can take many forms, such as training, mentorship, donations, business incubation, loans, grants, or any other assistance.
