I am still living in the Valais region of Switzerland, running my Alps-based travel business Epic Europe with my wife Susanna. Since 2012, we have been named Condé Nast Traveler’s preferred specialists for Switzerland and surrounding Alpine countries, and the business has exploded since the pandemic — we call this the era of “revenge travel.” We took advantage of the two years of closed borders in 2020-2022 to renovate and restore a 250-year-old Swiss farmhouse, using many of the skills that I learned in Mr. Brune’s workshop! 

Otherwise I manage to get out skiing, hiking, or biking just about every day, and keep up with fellow expats Andrew Dausch and Casey Gordon over in London. Also had a great visit this winter from Duncan McBean and his eldest daughter; he is living in Bellingham, Washington and runs the ER in a hospital there when not skiing in his family home in Jackson Hole.

Please look me up if ever in the Alps.
