What is your home country and how long have you been in Otttawa?

Canada, in Ottawa since 1989

Are you a published author, professor, clergyman or scholar?

Not published yet, but working on it. I am an Educator, Trainer and Consultant but not a professor. Life long learner...does that count?

Do you have an interesting life story or experience that will help us better understand the culture you are coming from?

In a past life, I had a 33 year career in Parliamentary Security. I once was the bodyguard of two Prime Ministers, visiting Royalties and Heads of State. It is probably where I first enjoyed meeting people from other nations.

Are you a Canadian that has traveled or lived abroad with intersting stories or cultural insights to help us better understand the world?

I spent 4 months in Mexico on a very limited budget and discovered that living in a Middle Class neighbourhood does not mean living with the same middle class standards we cherish here in Canada. Ask me about my time there.
