Teacher, traveller, climber, diver, adventurer. Currently teaching the prep year at Bogazici University. Istanbul is a great city.

About me, well let's see, I'm Canadian..... and I studied Development work and Environmental Studies in Canada, which led me to a life of travel. I have done research in Baffin Island with the Inuit, and also with the Karen people, in a village in Northern Thailand. I lived in Thailand for 5 years, did aid work in Burma (for the Karen, not the 'government'), and then moved to South Korea. After travelling the Phillipines, India, Nepal and Northern Pakistan I moved to Hong Kong for 2 years. I also spent a good part of my high school in the States, though most of my family comes from England and Scotland. I've been in Istanbul for about 12 years now, cause it is just an impossible place to leave!! :)) Hope to meet you so we can exchange stories, info and insights on the world...
