About the Author

Brandon Ferdig grew up in northern Minnesota. Early on, he discovered a fascination and enjoyment interviewing people and studying what makes them tick. This interest led to a degree in psychology.

But he realized his true passion not in a research lab--it was out on the street. And after graduating, he switched focus to journalism and media via blogging, cable access television, and freelance reporting.

In his mid-twenties, Ferdig fell in love with travel--specifically, how it opened his heart to engage with new people and opened his mind to new insights about humanity. He visited several domestic and international destinations, but not content with the knowledge and wisdom attained from just travel, he decided to move abroad. Ferdig lived in China for eleven months working and traveling.

His book, Life Learned Abroad: Lessons on Humanity from China, is the culmination of the experiences and insights over his time there.

Ferdig's other writings on technology and law, human behavior, social commentary, and his human interest stories have been featured in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the St. Paul Pioneer Press, and Minnesota Public Radio (

He writes at, where he currently shares commentaries and travel stories from a recent stay in East Africa.
