I was born in Canada in 1949 and my father
was a Canadian diplomat. His profession allowed me to begin travelling
at an early age and to date I have visited over 130 countries,
mostly in the third world.
In addition to Costa Rica, where
I currently reside, I have lived in Canada, U.S., England, Nigeria,
Togo, Kenya, Botswana, Thailand, Indonesia and Belize.
In 1972, I graduated with a B.A.
in Sociology (minor Anthropology and History) from Carleton University
in Ottawa. My career paths include journalism, travel writer,
tour operator, handi-craft importer, music programmer, and night
club owner (Bamboo Club, Toronto)
I speak four languages (English,
French, Spanish and Indonesian), and have numerous friends and
contacts world wide. My interests include history, anthropology,
archaeology, wildlife, the environment, and music
