About the Author

From his earliest memories David Jedeikin has possessed an unquenchable thirst for world travel. In his youth he devoured classic science fiction – Robert Silverberg, Frederik Pohl, and Ursula Le Guin. Today, he counts writers of travel, philosophy, and modern life such as Paul Theroux, Bill Bryson, Douglas Coupland, and Alain de Botton among his major influences. A nomad even before his world journey, Jedeikin has lived in Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Lansing, Michigan, Chicago, and Boston. During this time he managed to organize a world-record-breaking charity telethon, co-edit a start-up Internet magazine, and serve as assistant editor on a French-Canadian-Mexican made-for-TV production of Tarzan. For the moment, Jedeikin has laid down roots in San Francisco, where he works as a software engineer, but the lure of further travel is never far from his mind.
