Story
Introduction
I have another G+ under LeonKaye but I'm trying to use this one more since it's aligned with my sustainability and global news web site, GreenGoPost.com.

Visited Dubai (UAE), Qatar and other GCC countries Jan 25-Feb 26 2012. Looking to meet with professionals in the region to explore long term opportunities. World traveler ready for a huge change.

Freelance journalist and consultant. Contributing writer to The Guardian, Triple Pundit, Inhabitat and Earth911.

Current interests, and to that end Google Plus circles, include sustainability, the Balkans, Korea and the Middle East. And I am smitten with the changes going on in Qatar.

I make the business case for sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR).

Feel free to reach out. Ramping up use of Google Plus and Twitter. Would appreciate a Skype meeting over tea while I'm back in California and mulling another trip to the Gulf region.
Bragging rights
Visited 50+ countries, accomplished journalist, managed to complete an MBA, always immersed in international affairs.
