I was born in Derbyshire and studied in Sheffield and lived a lot of my life in North Lincolnshire, before moving here in my late twenties. My wife is Danish and we two children on the edge of adulthood. I studied librarianship and worked in the education sector until cutbacks in VIA University College. My leisure time is used on gardening. birdwatching, reading (history and natural history), football (Derby County, in particular), dog walking (we own a Border Collie) and travel. I would like to become part of the ex pat network for no other ulterior motive than making some meaningful contacts.
