Training my co-workers in Ghana about how to use social media for business
I wrote a travel blog for my local newspaper documenting my journey around the world
I've had a lot of personal adventures, and they've made me great at adapting to new situations and rolling with the punches
That time I had malaria in West Africa
That time a large baboon broke into my hotel room
That time I acted in a Ghanaian soap opera
That time I camped with Maasai warriors
Those times I skydived, bungee jumped, white water rafted, and para glided
Those travels through
5 continents
Constantly
