My self-summary
Teaching sociology and history in Shenzhen China. Can see Hong Kong from my apartment. So far so good and looking at extending on my 53 countries.
My outlook on life is one of making the most of each day and packing in as many exciting experiences as possible. I have appeared on a BBC game show, run three marathons, met and asked some probing questions to Toadie and Haorld Bishop, survived a 139 Meter Bungy jump had a poem published (ok I was 13 at the time) and danced to Baggy Trousers by Madness in 13 countries i'm guessing can say or would indeed admit to that. I also lived in New Zealand for a year where i had my 'Damascus' and switched my career from accounts to teaching. I had a fantastic visit with 23 students to partner school in Kenya this summer which was inspirational. I love have a job which is really rewarding knowing that i have had a part in the students success and more importantly having an laugh every day. It would be great to meet someone with a similar outlook on life and who enjoys to have a good laugh
