Where are you from originally?

Born in Halifax, Yorkshire but grew up in Ambleside in the Lake District. Went to university at Kent and Edinburgh. Lived in Scotland for 7 years (Edinburgh and Ayr) before moving to the US.

How long have you been in the USA?

Since Oct 1997. Originally I moved to Connecticut from the UK with work, but in Feb 1998 was re-located to the Bay Area and have been here since - its a hard place to leave! I enjoy the wide range of outdoor and urban activities available here.

Tell us a bit more about your family?

I'm single. My parents are retired and live in Kircudbright, nr Dumfries in south west Scotland. My (only) brother and his wife live outside Sheffield.

Why are you interested in joining?

I'd like to make some British friends who share the same cultural background. This is becoming more important as I'll probably be staying in the US for good. Oh, and to find some fellow Brits to watch my Blackadder DVDs with!


I'd like to meet some fellow Brits in the Bay Area, especially the South Bay. Although I enjoy living in the US and the Bay Area, sometimes I miss a British perspective on life. The sense of humor is different here for a start!
