I'm a Canadian happily living abroad. Have just returned to Southsea after 3.5 months in Shanghai (and previously worked in the Netherlands). I enjoy travel, theatre, opera, jazz, cinema, books, good food and good friends. I'm an academic who is passionate about research and teaching (mostly on musical theatre but also popular culture and globalization). I've been spending quite a bit of time in East Asia this year, not a long term goal but an exciting development I've been enjoying.
