I have authored a history book, "Violent Justice." I have also published many articles in the field of international politics and economics. Resource Investor, Oil Price, The Huffington Post, The National Interest, Current Intelligence, Al-Monitor Geopolitical Monitor, and many other periodicals have carried my work. I have been interviewed on radio stations in the U.S. and in Australia. I studied international relations at UCLA. I was for seven years the director of a private equity firm and have lived in seven countries. I have recently moved from Japan after ten years.
