I’ve spent 20 years working internationally. Now I want you to have the same opportunity.

Including time in Bosnia, Afghanistan, and Kosovo. First, in support of the US Department of Defense and then most recently with NATO, I’ve been an international consultant for years. I’ve come to understand the international community, environment, and how to manage an international career. After a nearly eight-year consultancy with NATO, I founded Capacity Building International to bring that field experience to the US, our academic partners, and to students seeking an international lifestyle. My motivation is to provide you the “insider information” you’ll need to find, apply, and prepare for international positions. I wish someone would have done for me when I started in 1999, but that simply didn’t exist or information was simply not shared back then. Now we have the chance to change that and create opportunities for everyone who has the desire and motivation to live the international life in another country.
