We're in Calgary now, and Rali's US mobile phone still works, but with a new number:
1-571-243-5738 (Rali's mobile)
We'll probably get local mobile phone numbers in the next few months, but these numbers should be good through October.

Greetings from the Roesing family. I'm Rich Roesing, originally from Pennsylvania, USA. I lived in Bulgaria from July 1994 to November 2000, where I met my lovely bride, Ralitsa. We were married in Rali's hometown in 1998. I work for the US Department of State.

I just finished my first assignment with the State Department at the US embassy in Abuja, Nigeria. Read about Abuja and Nigeria on our Nigeria links page. We arrived in Calgary, Alberta, in August 2006 to begin a two-year tour at the US Consulate there.

We have two sons, Kristof and Kelvin. Kristof was born in 2000 in Bulgaria, and Kelvin was born in 2002 in Croatia. Our third child and first daughter, Carmen, was born in 2005 in London.

Do you know me?

I'm a graduate of Honesdale High School, the University of Scranton, and the University of Maine Business School. I've lived in Blagoevgrad and Sofia, Bulgaria; Pristina, Kosovo; Zagreb, Croatia; Beirut, Lebanon; and Abuja, Nigeria. And I've been a hasher with the Zagreb Strollers Hash House Harriers and the Abuja Hash House Harriers.

Are you a former classmate or colleague? Drop me a line!
