The life of Ted Bauman has been an interesting and productive one. Bauman was born in Washington, D.C and raised along the eastern shore of Maryland. As a young adult, Bauman decided to immigrate to South Africa. This gave him a unique opportunity to study abroad and add to his worldview. There he enrolled at the University of Cape Town and found his true passion, receiving postgraduate degrees in both Economics and History. Throughout most of his career in South Africa Bauman worked in the nonprofit sector, highlighting a natural desire to give back to the community. He served, primarily, as a fund manager. In this position, he would assist with orchestrating the development of low-cost housing for needy populations within his community. Surely, Bauman’s early career foreshadowed the depth of service he would go on to provide in the coming years to countless organizations.
After his time in South Africa, Bauman began working with multiple international organizations to start up housing projects abroad. Visiting over 75 countries, Bauman’s new work required frequent travel. He worked frequently in countries located in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Naturally, Bauman’s work drew in major organizations wanting to work with him to fulfill their visions of helping their own communities. Bauman found success working with the United Nations, The World Bank, European grant-making agencies, and the South African government. While each client came with their own challenging projects, Bauman faced each of them with the kindness and benevolence he always seems to show through his work with those who are less fortunate.
Eventually, Habitat for Humanity International offered Bauman their position of Director for International Housing Programs. In 2008, he took this position and moved back to the United States permanently. This move would signify a new, productive chapter in Bauman’s life. Bauman worked with Habitat for Humanity International until 2013, when he decided to dedicate his life to research and writing full time. He took a position with Banyan Hill Publishing where he currently presides as the editor of multiple publications. He writes articles specializing in privacy, international migration, asset protection, and investment strategies. Bauman uses his international experience to fuel the information that he provides to his readers. He is an avid researcher and works tirelessly to provide his audience with pertinent and useful information. Hopefully, his work with Banyan Publishing will continue to honor the legacy he has created.
