I was born in China.
My dad was a career diplomat and as a result, I grew up in several countries: China, the Netherlands, the UK, France, Germany, Mauritius, Lebanon, Italy, and the United States.
Exposure to multiple cultures was instrumental in shaping my outlook on life.
I’m a native English speaker and while growing up, I also learned Dutch, French, German, Creole, Arabic, Italian, and Hindi.
Of these, I’ve retained French, Italian and Hindi.
And, of course, English.
I love traveling, and I’ve been to over 50 countries.
I’m also an unashamed foodie, wine, and scotch whisky lover.
My wife and I live in the Tampa Bay area in Florida with our dog, Ellie.
