Then, having become an expert on career change, he was a career counselor for 15 years. He retired for six years in Thailand and has now returned to the US. The stories in Through Farang Eyes are based on personal observation, stories told him by Thai friends, and stories in the Bangkok Post and on Thai news broadcasts.
