On the surface, Escape from America is the story of an American aspiring to change his life and plan a future in China. Beneath the surface, however, this book features critical analysis of both countries in an effort to promote greater understanding. China, in spite of its long history, is still a very “young” country where development is slow and unsteady. Sure, we from the “West” can say we’ve arrived—but have we really?EFA is meant to educate and entertain readers who wish to truly "know" two of the world’s dominant superpowers, as well as provide powerful insight from someone approaching the subject from both a local and global perspective.But that's not all.. My “story within a story” is one that I believe can encourage you, whatever your background, to take a closer look at your country, your life, and take everything into account. Step back and examine your world, ask yourself: Am I happy? Do I like what I see? What future goals might I wish to pursue?Broadly speaking, for anyone who is not satisfied with the status quo and feels there are better ways forward, this book will inspire you.

BIOGRAPHY And as of today, I've been initiated into the world of an authorpreneur.
My writing career began by drafting press releases and artist bios for NYC music and film companies, later producing financial articles for Forbes, travel and tourism pieces for a medical publisher, and more recently, marketing and sales copy for a Beijing-based e-commerce firm.
I am originally from New York and earned a BA from Columbia University; several years later I relocated to Beijing, China to reinvent myself and pursue new opportunities for business. There I created a successful education consulting business for a local training center to assist students to study abroad. In addition to managing, I produced staff training programs, presented at various industry events, and taught my own writing and communications skills courses.
Today, I oversee Shanghai EDGE Consulting, an online education services company where I teach English, Business, and Writing, and am a consultant to international students. In the future, I hope to use my new book, Escape from America, as a platform for making a positive impact on society and inspiring others to improve their lives and pursue their passions.
