Prairie Weather


After seven years working in export controls at the Department of State, I packed up and left the hustle, bustle, and underwhelming mid-Atlantic winters with my family for a small house on the windswept prairie of South Dakota.

We are enjoying rural life (including seven months of winter and five months of gardening) and I am applying my education and experience in export consulting: helping businesses to navigate export regulations, policies, and classifications.

See my about page for more professional background.

See my writings page for a selection of articles and abstracts of scholarly papers.

The blog feeds below are for a few side projects: Observant Observations and To the Prairie and Beyond! Observant Observations seeks to present overlooked or generally misunderstood issues and ideas, while tidbits of life on the prairie as well as news and commentary from around the world can be found at the more general To the Prairie and Beyond!

To the Prairie and Beyond!
