Born in Ashanti-speaking country, raised in Massachusetts, Southern California, Central Florida and Melbourne, Australia, I now live in New Orleans, er, scratch that. Katrina suggested I move up. I did, roughly about 20 feet (and a thousand miles east, and a few hundred north), to Balmer.
Spent the first decade-ish of my adult life in and around universities studying and/or teaching economics, with brief stint as a young man at Telecom Australia. I am now well into my second decade as a private consultant (if the price is right). Or was. Things keep changing.
