I work for the United Nations in Thailand and am currently head the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs' regional office for Asia and the Pacific ((website hidden)). I travel a lot for work and also love to travel for pleasure. My partner (Angelo) and I moved to Thailand from New York in early 2011 and are enjoying living here in Bangkok.
Apart from travel I have a keen interest in humanitarian affairs and development work. I've spent the last 25 years of my life working for various aid agencies focusing on trying to make sure that humanitarian assistance is delivered in ways which really help people.
In terms of hobbies and interests I love old black and white movies, decent British comedy (the old stuff) and cars. I read like a fiend - consuming 2 or 3 books at a time. My newly acquired kindle is a curse and a blessing - I can't seem to put it down!
