The concept for this blog began many years ago when I graduated from university and moved to Morocco to begin teaching music. The DuneHopper Diaries was originally an email newsletter that I used to keep family and friends updated on my travels, teaching, and other assorted adventures. That newsletter morphed into a blog of the same name when I moved to Kenya to continue teaching music. The blog evolved as the road of life kept twisting: from Kenya to a graduate program in London, to a music teaching job in South Africa, through a battle with thyroid cancer, and now a move back to the United States.
Though the blog is no longer called the DuneHopper, its essence is the same.
I am a wanderer who often wonders at this world. Sometimes I write about my wanderings and sometimes about my wonderings. However you came to join me here, I hope you enjoy this meditative ramble.
