Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, home is San Francisco, but have just moved to Singapore for
work. Have had the privilege of living and working in a number of
countries across five continents, and traveled in seven.
Given my wanderlust, I tend to mix business with pleasure - and
fortunately my job (hint: it has to deal with risk) gives me the
opportunity to travel for work.

following list of things I have experienced in the last 12 months
that is false:
A. Being proposed to by a Mongolian gal on the 7 day Trans-Siberian
train across Russia
B. Taken the plunge in the chilling waters of the Antarctic, not
realizing that a polar bear was 250 yards away
C. Twice stopped by the Interpol in the space of 24 hours, in
Bolivia and Paraguay
D. Being featured in the Brazilian newspaper for my apparent love
of their dance forro during the World Cup
E. Ending up owning a temple in an exquisite Ecuadorean valley -
despite not being religious
