About meCurrently in South Carolina, I grew up in Canada (Edmonton and London), went to university in Arizona and have lived since in England (Warwick and Wantage), France (Paris), Germany (Munich) and South Carolina (Greenville).

I've just returned from three years in Germany. It's an adjustment.
