About Me
I am a professional civil engineer who previously lived in Canada now resident in the UK. My consulting career included transportation planning, logistics and financial systems development. My experience led me to the development of reinsurance catastrophe models in the City of London. Clients were companies and governments hence I have travelled to Australia, Taiwan, Korea, much of Europe and north America. I have two adult sons I enjoy sailing, golf, astronomy, jazz & the theatre. I would like to spend several months on Vancouver Island each year. My home is a 4 bedroom in historic Old Portsmouth on the seafront overlooking The Solent and the Isle of Wight, 90 minutes by train to London
