About & Contact



I am from San Francisco, living in Bangkok. I am Thai American, a novelist with one novel, House of the Four Cracked Doors, so far. I am also the writer and editor of Thai Intel Group of Blogs that I started in 2008.

This blog is part of that.

During my education in San Francisco Bay Area, in the 1980s, I worked for Trans Global Enterprise as an executive. The firm was involved in private investment fund management through a partnership with Shearson Lehman Brothers, invested in real estate and global trade.

In San Francisco, I frequently wrote letters to the editor of newspapers & magazines there. Most were published. Personally, I love writing. I came to Thailand in 1991 and entered journalism.

Therefore, professionally, I am a lifelong journalist and editor, mostly in business, economics, and technology. I was also a columnist on national security. I worked with some of the most respected and well-known media in Thailand such as Bangkok Post, Business Day, Bangkok Biz News and CIO Forum.

For many years, apart from the professional career, I was an activist relating to Asia. The activism is mostly through independent blogging, giving interviews and social media activities. About three years ago I changed to cover global and American issues.

The total hits for my blog group are about 4 million. Some of the blog posts are archived by USA Library of Congress and many are ranked close to top on Google search. Kred ranks me as top 1% social-media influencer.

I noticed lots of great success in the form of high levels reaction and often acceptance of my advice and suggestions.

The activist work was worth the efforts, but the work made my life far from easy.

I took time out to write my first novel, House of the Four Cracked Doors, but I never got serious at sales and marketing. As to why, perhaps the novel is more a diary to me and there are time limitations.

Recently, I decided I needed a change.

Now I am on vacation, relaxing, seeing new places and people. I am also writing my second novel and working on some part-time jobs.

Best Regards,

Terence Chulavachana
