Where are you from originally?

While entering the world in Essex, my parents new better and brought me up in Hertfordshire - specifically the village of Hertingfordbury near Hertford.

How long have you been in the USA?

I made the move to San Jose in 1998.

Tell us a bit more about your family?

My side of the family mostly lives in Australia, my wife's family is in Germany.

Why are you interested in joining?

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!
