Tell us about yourself:
I was born in Montgomery, Alabama in 1956. My family is from northeastern Alabama. My father was in the military, so I moved around a lot growing up - Taiwan, Georgia, Texas, Germany, and from the age of 11 mostly Florida. Began university in Colorado in my freshman and sophomore years. Then moved back to complete by undergraduate degree in Birmingham. In my 20s I lived in Virginia, LA, Birmingham, and Montgomery, and then I moved to Atlanta at 30. At 35 I moved to London, where I lived till 2017. Most of my working life has been spent working as a financial writer, but I'm now studying to be a psychologist.
Area of knowledge and what I know well:
Most of my working life was spent doing financial writing for banks and large investment firms. I studied economics at university. I've always been interested in languages and I've studied French, German and more recently Spanish and Dutch. I still speak French fairly well, and I can get by pretty easily when I travel to German speaking countries. More recently I went back to college (Webster University) to study psychology with a focus on counselling.
