So where am I from?
am originally from South Africa haling from the sun kissed beach city of
Durban (otherwise known as the "Last Outpost of the British
Empire"). I have also lived in Namibia, and traveled to Britain,
Europe, USA, South America and Asia several times.
1997 I moved to the United States. Why? Well, a woman of course, why else
would one move 15,000 miles to a new home away from one's friends and
family, to a "foreign" culture?
Where do I live?
March 28, 1998 Wendy and I were married on Goose Rocks Beach,
then we have lived in Kennebunk - Maine, San Francisco and Los Angeles in California,
Phoenix - Arizona, Dallas - Texas (yeah, I know, so I move around a lot)
and now finally in the "small city on the river" Port Richey, Florida
where we have settled for good.
is, of course, the great melting pot of Commonwealth / American culture as
no one from Florida is actually from here!
Those not from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and
other North East states, believe it or not, are from Britain. There are
more English expatriates per square mile in Western Florida than there are
anywhere else in the world. A great place to research American / English
Settling in America
this aside, I have settled into American life quite comfortably - I LOVE
my Ford Mustang convertible (I don't even want to begin to think what this
baby cost in South Africa!!) and God forbid, I have even begun to think in
American (hence this website being spelt in American English!!).
just the other day my wife caught me saying that I was " fixin'
" to go to somewhere!
What do I do?
am content in my house on the water in New Port Richey, Florida where I work from
home as an independant web designer:
and help my wife run our other company
Windsong Sailing Charters.
more than all, my most precious possession is my American wife Wendy!
