About Tom Muller
.
At age 50, I stand on the
summit of Mt. KilimanjaroTHOMAS E. MULLER was raised in a multicultural environment and became fluent in six languages. Born in Africa and educated in Kenya, Iran, Britain and Canada, he has lived in eight countries on five continents.

It was this exposure that made Tom realize how precious little of their own planet most humans have experienced---its citizens and lands, its cultural diversity, and the amazing variety of its physical features and natural environments.

He decided to do something about it via this website. His message: Find a way to fully experience your Earth. Get to know the only planet you will ever inhabit.
Telling students about Antarctica at a
primary school in the Czech RepublicNow in his fourth career, Tom writes for travel magazines whose readers are primarily seniors and post-World War II Baby Boomers approaching retirement. When he's not in Australia, he is learning about a new place and capturing his travel impressions, or lecturing on the fascinating world of cultural diversity.

Whenever possible, Tom visits schools during his travels to give the local children an illustrated talk on what Earth can offer and to instill a sense of wonder at their age.

Following his training in experimental cognitive psychology and behavioral decision-making he became a professor of economic/consumer psychology for 25 years in Canada, Australia, and Japan.

degree from Simon Fraser University, in Vancouver, Canada. He
devoted his academic career to the study of consumer behavior and
has written several textbooks and 80 research articles appearing in
scientific journals and edited books. Interviews about his research on
the Baby Boomer generations of Canada, the United States and Australia
have aired on Canadian and Australian network television and radio,
and were reported in many newspaper and magazine write-ups.

In Australia, he was the Professor and Foundation Chair in Marketing at Griffith University and, in Japan, Professor of Economic Psychology, at Hagoromo University of International Studies.

Tom took early retirement from academia to devote more time to his passion for adventure travel in the Earth's remotest and least accessible regions---the geographic North Pole, Arctic Ocean, Siberia, Sakhalin Island, Kamchatka Peninsula and the Bering Sea, Franz Josef Land, northern Alaska, Canada's Far North and Ellesmere Island, Northern Greenland, the Empty Quarter in Saudi Arabia/UAE, Lake Aral, the Southern Ocean, the Ross Sea section of Antarctica and the sub-Antarctic islands, the Falklands, South Georgia, and the Antarctic Peninsula.
Son, Tommi's "Rainbow Lionfish" exhibited
at his Australian school's annual art showTom never lost his childhood passion for astronomy and
often seizes opportunities to observe and photograph
precisely predictable celestial events.

His other passion is observing the behaviours and
customs of different national cultures. His preferred
physical environments are mountains, deserts and
coral reefs, thus he is keen on hiking, scaling
dormant volcanoes, and scuba diving.

He is married to a Japanese nurse and they have a
23-year-old son, born in Australia, who is currently
completing a double honours degree in Mathematics and
Computer Science, at the University of British Columbia.
His Canadian daughter is a writer of children's books.
