San Jose, CAUSA
March 31, 2011
While entering the world in Essex, my parents new better and brought me up in Hertfordshire - specifically the village of Hertingfordbury near Hertford.
I made the move to San Jose in 1998.
My side of the family mostly lives in Australia, my wife's family is in Germany.
While not at all homesick I am proudly English in the way that most expats are. Would be happy to meet folk who understand my native idiom, don't think driving on the right side of a car is mad and think English food/dentistry/weather is fine.
Like many people, I came to the Bay Area to sample Silicon Valley in the mid-1990s and have never moved on. Maybe one day it'll be time to move on but for the forseeable future it's my home and I really like it!
A very enthusiastic and friendly group - I look forward to more events like these.
