Biography

I was born and grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa. I am still surprised that events unfolded to bring me to the USA. Just 12 years ago if someone had said that I would be married, and living in the US of A, I would have thought they were smoking bananas.

The reason I came to the USA was to study. I enrolled at Denver University and completed a Masters in Environmental Policy and Management. Since I have a law background, (I practiced as an attorney for approx 5 years) I had visions of returning to SA armed with a new set of skills. Instead I met and married the most wonderful man - my husband Kevin.

We now live happily in Colorado in Fort Collins with our Maddy, a rescue seal point siamese who we adopted from the Humane Society.

Together we love exploring Colorado, going on amazing road trips, finding new restaurants, and seeking adventure large or small (and the small adventures are often the most rewarding.)

Interests

I enjoy nothing better than packing up and going on a road trip with my husband. We share so much: an avid curiosity of what may be behind the next rise as well as our photography. Kevin is a much better photographer - I am a point 'n shooter. Apart from photography we both enjoy fishing. There is no better feeling than the feeling of a fish take the line. From April - June Kevin and I put our forecasting hats on and go storm chasing. This is the ultimate road trip. The distances travelled are usually huge. It is not abnormal to clock 1,500 miles in one weekend. It is a magnificant way to see the countryside, to see out of the way towns and villages. Kevin is interested in star gazing. He has a dobsonian telescope that he built. He introduced me to star parties - a place where other star gazers and enthusiasts converge for a couple of nights of star gazing, and mutual admiration of each others gadgets.
