I’m Steve Goodman.

My background is in sales, marketing, business development and general management. Back in 2002, after a successful and somewhat conventional career in the software and Internet business I decided to take a break and do something completely different.

I sold my house in San Francisco, put my stuff in storage and set out with just a backpack to travel, almost exclusively overland, throughout southeast Asia. I visited Thailand, Viet Nam, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Myanmar, India and Nepal.

In 2005 I settled down in Phnom Penh, Cambodia where I spent seven years working part-time as a freelance photographer, as a digital marketing consultant for a large advertising agency, as a publisher of blogs and photoblogs and as a guitar player in an assortment of rock and blues bands.

In 2012 I returned to America to restart my business career. After spending some time in the Detroit area visiting my mother and brother I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where I lived until late 2016.

In January 2017 I moved to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam where I now live and work as an English teacher, as well as teaching guitar and ukulele lessons.
