Some of my main interests include chess, plants, poetry, philosophy and cooking. Having said that, I'm interested to some degree in pretty much everything!
I currently live in the UK but I am moving out to China soon. I spent some time in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria and before that I lived for many years in Palermo, Sicily where I learnt Italian. I did a Masters in translation in Vicenza about 10 years ago but translation has become more of a hobby recently.
