I was born in 1982 in the sunny city of Manchester, England. Its a good place - rough at the edges, and not really a tourist destination - but a fun place to live. In 2000 I was accepted to Leeds University to study a degree in History, from where I graduated in July 2003. Leeds is a bit like Manchester, but even rougher at the edges.
I've met some great people in every place I have lived and continue to do so. If there's one thing I've learned about life, its that it is always more surreal than it first appears.
I'm now a canadian permanent resident and I currently live in Toronto with my fiancée, and a stuffed bear called Hesketh, who has been by my side since day one.
