    Hi! We are a cartwheel-turning couple who value new experiences and learning new things. We ran a successful non-profit children's theatre company, that toured the United States for several decades. Now we are eager to share what we have learned on stage and in business. We are accustomed to the nomadic lifestyle, having lived and traveled in a motorhome (caravan) for many years. We are curious about you and your culture, the arts, traditions and seeing the natural wonders.

    In November 2021 we set out to circumnavigate our way around the world from East to West. We choose our destinations based on where we think we can help the most. We are especially interested in programs that benefit children.

    At the end of 2022 one of our volunteer gigs led to a job offer. So for the 2023-24 school year we accepted full-time positions as English teachers in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Kimberly is teaching pre-school through 2nd grade students, and Dennis is teaching the 3rd through 6th grade. We love it here. But we still long to travel. We will be volunteering again at the end of 2024.
