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, American standards and values were reinforced at home by his Thai born, American naturalized mother, and Caucasian, Army-brat turned Marine Warrant Officer father.
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 in his final days 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 many of his near and distant Thai relatives. By the time he was on the plane back to the USA, the Southeast Asian seed had long been germinating within his heart.
He returned to Thailand permanently 7 months later on a sole-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, and later embarking, exploring, breeding and feeding within journalism and writing circles.
In his first five years, he lived in Thailand under immigration visas stamped into his American passport, all the while accumulating and compiling the necessary evidence to prove via DNA, legalized documents, and tedious interviews his right to Thai national status, which 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–striving 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…
