Welcome to the Clever Expat! 

Hi, I'm Dr. Christopher Wells, and welcome to the Clever Expat website! I'm glad you are here!

This website started as a spin-off from my meetup, Future Expats. I have learned so much as an expat! I've gone through the expat process twice and helped many people identify their expat dreams and goals.

Over time, I developed a wide variety of resources and coaching tools to help others succeed in reaching their expat goals. As a teacher, academic, and instructional designer, I work hard to create quality content. That's why I started the Clever Expat website.
