Born in South Africa, I spent most of my life and did most of my education there (about 24 years). I spent 1 year during early childhood living in Germany and 3.5 in the U.S. where I finished high school. I have been in Taiwan for 17 years and worked here as a legal counsel at various companies while also having taught English. I am very international. My interests are reading, poetry, history, swimming and hiking.
