Over the past decade, I’ve written off and on for newspapers and magazines in Macedonia including Dnevnik, Vreme, Nova Makedonija and Forum. From June of 2011, I’ve agreed, once again, to start writing regular weekly columns, this time once again for my friends at Dnevnik.

Though the audience is the Macedonian public – and since my native language is English – these columns will be posted on this website for those inquiring minds who want to know what an American, an Arizonan of Hungarian descent, has to say to the people of Macedonia. My hope is to encourage, enlighten and enliven the Macedonians, and maybe a few others along the way.
