My wife Kristy and I are based in Vancouver, Canada. I work in environment/technology at my own start-up and Kristy is a mediator. We regularly travel for work and pleasure, mostly in the US and Europe.
After finishing my studies in Geography at the University of Victoria, I worked as an international civil servant and lived in Geneva, Los Angeles, Whistler, and Washington DC.
I enjoy reading, mostly history but also novels, and follow the news pretty closely, particularly international.
We have found that AirBNB is a great opportunity to not be in a generic hotel, but instead feel like you're in a neighbourhood, which can make travelling less of a burden.
