About Me
It's been 16 years. Yes 16 years since we left the Great White North and made the actual change from Wannabes to Expats. After six incredible years in Costa Rica, we made the decision to relocate to Nicaragua. Most people thought we were crazy but the joke is on them. It's been almost 11 years and we don't foresee any changes in the near future.

Having an entrepreneurial background and being handy in all sorts of things helps here in the third world. I was in the medical equipment business as well as the hotel business in California. Now, my wife and I own and operate several businesses here in Granada and being "Flexible" and "A Jack of all Trades"is actually a good thing!

What is so unique about living abroad is being able to do some many things you might not be able to do in the States. For the last 10 years I have been designing and building custom colonial homes and loving every minute of using what creativity I actually have to do something so meaningful and lasting.

Safety is always an issue all over the world, not just in Granada, Nicaragua. So the best measure would be how we here in Granada FEEL or how we see others FEELING and the answer is extremely safe.  We feel safe, we fee free to walk around and enjoy the outdo... Read More
