T.K. Marks has been traveling extensively since childhood. A four year stint in the U.S. Army was mostly spent at the Presidio of Monterey’s Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center (DLIFLC). Working there, with native language instructors and curriculum developers, he learned cultural insights about many dozens of countries around the world.
His 35+ year career in Computer IT has sent him flying to many parts of the world on long business trips which has allowed for many adventurous side trips and extended holidays. When not traveling and writing, he continues his career as an IT Software consultant and project manager (PMP / ITIL certified) focused on cloud-based service offerings.
