Massachusetts-born, recently repatriated former expat, back in the USA after four years abroad in Cambridge, England. Living in St. Petersburg now (Florida, not Russia), traveling the world, and reading a lot.
Curiosity. Adventure. Travel, Innovation, Design, Media, Economics – and all of their links.
I’m a writer, researcher, and regional and social innovation strategist with a background in tech startups, economic geography, and media. I love places and ideas – their future, their connectivity, their cultures. I think about how places and ideas develop and how people experience and are influenced by them.
Before living in St Pete, I lived in the Boston suburbs (hometown), Miami, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and (of course) Cambridge, England. I’ve travelled to and/or worked with companies across the U.S., South America, Europe, and Africa.
I made this blog for journalism class when I was student in 2009. Since then, it has evolved.
This is my personal record of my explorations – through the world and through the pages.
Feel free to say hello :) – Sam
