About Me

During my life I have had the priceless opportunity to live in many different countries and
experience and adapt to very diverse cultures. I have spent long periods of time living in Italy,
Thailand, Spain, Canada, France and the UK. Over this time I developed a strong understanding
and appreciation of languages, cultures and their subtile nuances. This has made me deeply
value multicultural dialogue and exchange. Furthermore, the frequent changes of environment
have sculpted my character into a highly flexible, adaptable, curious and tolerant person.
