expatriate sonographer Expat@Large here, currently working in
Hong Kong Singapore for a medical
ultrasound company or two.
I've been Applications Support, Senior Applications Support,
Clinical Trainer and Clinical Marketing Manager and never once
seen a job description. Aah, Management. What is the first Myth
thereof? Well, you know the answer.
and current role:
International Clinical Specialist.

devoid of emotion and sensitivity
out on a limb, career-wise
here and there across a coupla continents (38 countries!), living
in and out of a suitcase, chasing the best girls and the cheapest
beers (or was it the other way around?), looking professional
and acting amatuer (or was it the other way around?), saving
money and spending time (or was it the other way around?) and
generally growing old disgracefully...
other words - your typical ex-pat, having a GREAT TIME!

it gets too out of date!!!

You can leave,
and go to my non award-winning blog
Or you can
try and wade your way throught the densely packed reasoning behind
this website in my Phil O'Sophical justification for laying bare
my soul to several billion strangers.
you can chase up some rapidly outdating information and opinions
on the controversial obstetric ultrasound dilemma of Choroid Plexus
Cysts of the fetus. This was submitted in a slightly more conventional
form (i.e. on paper) as part of my successful application for
the Fellowship of the Australian Institute of Radiography back
If you want something more in the support style of information about CPC, try the Choroid Plexus Cyst Organisation. It has an excellent forum for parents, and lots more up-to-date links.
as the bitter and twisted stuff on the blog,
those hungry for more of my prose can read some of my
published small pieces on ultrasound topics, or some of my immensely
amusing and/or depressing emails home about travel and such (superceded
now by said blog).
more droll is my attempt to catalogue the important things in my
life, like books and movies. You might want to agree or disagree
with these. Up to you, as the girls say in Thailand.
