In the once-traditional fashion of writers, I traveled widely when young, and lived in several countries, including Switzerland, Greece, France, Ireland, Italy, and the UK, and traveled to many more, not excluding Tunisia, Russia, Hungary, and Spain. Along the way I acquired an education and varied experience of life, working at different jobs (again, respecting tradition): translator, bartender, dishwasher, bookstore clerk, urban planning technician, driver, computer network administrator, editor, teacher, and even freelance writer. I now eke out an existence writing and editing and driving a taxi. Yet I still aspire to hit the big time before it's too late. Ha!
