Hi, I'm Gene

My upcoming book, Solving CHINA's Unknown Unknowns, is a blueprint for leaders and politicians to develop more constructive relationships with their Chinese counterparts.

I was born and raised in Atlanta and believe I'm as American as football and apple pie, a real BANANA, white on the outside, but yellow on the inside…

My life and career have come full circle since my first assignment in 1996 as Country Manager, Taiwan, to raising my ABC son in a world where China and America are trending geopolitically in too many negative directions...

My WHY and mission in life, to improve US-China relations one cross-cultural relationship at a time…

In my youth, I thought I'd play major league baseball until an injury derailed my aspirations, and I thought I'd be a rock guitarist until I ran out of talent.

I later discovered my true calling was my ability to communicate across Chinese-Western cultures, not because of my fluency in Mandarin Chinese, but with my curiosity and imagination regarding the values and experiences of others.

Knowing how to speak Chinese doesn't mean you know what to say in Chinese, but knowing what to say is a win in any language.

These are the principles that I apply to my Chinese business advisory, training, and coaching services.
