Hello! My name is B.D.

Actually, my full name is Barton Dyke Dalton II, a gift handed down from my father, hence the regal suffix.

I come from a long line of liberating people:

  • Clara Barton, who we get our name from, founded the American Red Cross and liberated people from famine and catastrophe.
  • The Dalton Gang liberated people from their money by robbing people in the Wild West.
  • Bart Simpson, no relation but same name, became a part of households everywhere in 1990 when I was living in Spain and learning about working with people, culture and language.

But I am a lazy Over-Achiever.
Immediately after high school I spent a year in Southern Spain on a Rotary International student exchange programme, spending as little time as possible in class but truly integrating myself into the Spanish life and culture. It was amazing and I didn’t want to leave!

When I went back to my home town of Tacoma, Washington, my goal was to find a career path that would support me and take me back to Europe. I majored in International Studies at Pacific Lutheran University during which time I was not lazy, working a full time job with a global logistics company so they would subsidize my university fees.
