I've grown up and lived most of my life in Canada. I have traveled extensively, having spent a year travelling in 1976-77 in Europe and Turkey including volunteering on Kibbutz Gvulot for 6 months. I took 4.5 months travelling in Asia in 1988-89. And have travelled over time to over 45 countries. For a career, I was an Investment manager. As a hobby, I like to write fiction and am close to finishing a near 'final' edit of my novel.
