Telling real stories about Afghanistan, Iran, and Somalia. Our guest today on Threshold Stories is Ken Alyta.

Ken’s international career is like something out of a storybook. I consider myself to be well-traveled and culturally astoop yet compared to Ken, I am a rookie at every level.

He lived in Mogadishu, Somalia in the 1960s and Afganastan and Iran in the 1970s. Additional stints in Saudi Arabia, Algeria, and Singapore finally led Ken to a 20-year career at Samsung where he retired in 2004.

Ken is an active member of the Charlotte Area Peace Corps Association.

His incredible cultural knowledge and experiences has us incredibly honored to feature him on this podcast.    

It’s time to cross the threshold with Ken Alyta.
