About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To improve the content of my personal bubble

ABOUT ME

The best laid plans...here I was planning to be a teacher overseas and I end up meeting the woman of my dreams and getting married, settling down and having children!! I love it, though. The teaching thing was really because I had nothing to stay here for, but now I do and it's the best ever. To think I'll be a Dad in less than 5 months is just CRAZY!

PHILOSOPHY

You can never have too many experiences in life, it all comes down to what you learn from them. "Stop watching TV and go outside and play", my Mother used to say, and I would groan and shamble out the door reluctantly. Now I can't think of anything better than to go outside and play!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

My first overseas experience was pretty amazing. I went to California for a few months and worked a harvest in one of the wineries over there and then headed up to live with a friend in a shack in the middle of nowhere in Nova Scotia, Canada. Got my first White Christmas! Having the ocean freeze over and then watching people drive their cars over it was pretty craZy!
