The Siamerican Wanderer is a dual national Thai American who was born in 1983 Common Era ( 2526 Buddhist Era) in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA – bred and raised in / around the Denver metropolitan area, under mostly American values and language under the command of his Caucasian, Army-brat turned Marine Warrant Officer father, as well as Thailand-born, American naturalized mother, who passed away in 1996.
The Siamerican Wanderer finally ventured to his late mother’s homeland, Thailand for the first time in June and July of 2001/2544 under a one month teach and travel scholarship cultural exchange program.
In this initial visit to the motherland during his final weeks as a minor, aside from being introduced into the world of ESL, and more importantly, Thai culture and society firsthand, he obtained key pieces in his family mystery-history puzzles, meeting several of his near and distant Thai relatives.
By the time he was on the plane back to the USA, a new seed had already germinated in his heart.
18, and with a highschool diploma, he returned to Thailand permanently 7 months later on his American passport, following his heart and soul’s yearning to embark upon a self and roots discovery journey – reuniting with nearly all of his surviving Thai relatives; uncovering family secrets and treasures; pursuing education, wisdom, and higher learning, supplementing himself by teaching children and adults to speak and communicate in the English language, all the while nurturing his passion and hobby of journalism and communications.
During his first five years in the kingdom, he was allowed to stay in Thailand under immigration visas, stamped into his American passport. In the meantime, he accumulated and compiled all the necessary evidence to prove, via DNA, legalized documents, and tedious verification and official scrutiny his birth right to Thai national status. Alas, the process was finalized in April of 2007 / 2550.
Of all that has occurred, is occurring, and will occur in time to come, the Siamerican has learned and continues to learn the fundamental universal truths and laws – and he continues to strive to always devote passion and penance to the wonderful gift of life in the memory of his ancestors and honor of his fruitful seed. The wave continues to vibrate and flow.
