About the Author

Ed is a young Californian, passionate about learning and leading, who was redirected to Central Asia about six years ago. He's an English, Russian, Kyrgyz, and Chinese-speaking Japanese American - who also speaks just enough Japanese to get sushi and miso soup at a restaurant, and not much more.

He is happily married to his wife, Becky.

Together, they run a conversational English club and stage open-air English courses in the park that draw close to a hundred people a summer. Recently, they've launched a university leadership club where they mentor a small circle of motivated students towards becoming great leaders.

Ed writes regularly at his personal blog, Live Lead Learn.
