Hi, my name is Christopher, and this is a journal of my dream to live in another country. After visiting Valencia, Spain, I knew that I would like to live there for a while. I have been living in Valencia since November, 2013!

Feel free to subscribe to this blog, and you’ll get an update whenever I post something new. Join me as I take a leap into the unknown…


I know that you clicked on “About” to find out more about me, so here’s some pertinent info:

Where I have lived:

  • Macon, Georgia, USA
  • Melbourne / Palm Bay, Florida, USA
  • St. Charles / Geneva / Batavia, Illinois, USA (near Chicago)
  • Atlanta, Georgia, USA
  • Valencia, España

I have three incredible daughters who make me very proud. I have also been a vegetarian since 1992, and was even vegan for five years.

I have been a high school teacher, a biologist, a business consultant, an international learning program designer, a policy and procedure developer, a technology director, a school district administrator, an author, a PhD student, and a traveler.

In 2009, I started a PhD program in Leadership and Organizational Change. When attending a residency in Spain, I visited Valencia, and realized that my dream of living overseas could come true. After three years of planning, selling most of what I have, and learning Spanish, I moved to Valencia. Now, I work online for a large educational company, writing my dissertation, and experiencing a new adventure in Spain.
