About me

I have been living overseas for over fifteen years in Singapore, China and the Philippines. Much of my time has also been spent in various parts of Europe for business and pleasure. This has given me a broad view of the various cultures along with the ability to naturally understand speakers whose native language is not English.  

On a personal note I love to grow my own food, hang out with my wife, and go surfing when it is available. I do not watch TV and instead prefer to listen to audio books and spend time at the beach.
