Pieter and I live year-round on Bowen Island, which is a 20 minute ferry ride from Vancouver, BC. We moved here almost 4 years ago after a lifetime of urban living - including 12 years in Sydney, Australia, where our son was born -- and are still pinching ourselves that we get to live on this beautiful island. Our son goes to the primary school here, and we each consult (legal communications, and logistics software) from a studio above the garage - donning boardroom garb only when necessary! We love to travel, and are interested in books, the arts, design, and food and wine of almost every description. Pieter is building his first sailboat, I am writing my first book, and our son is usually to be found riding his bike or working on the neighborhood "fort".
