I am from Dundee in Scotland but have been living and working in Catalonia, Spain since 2003. I have a 9 year-old daughter who keeps me on my toes. Before working as an English teacher, I worked in a number of fields including a solicitor’s office, Post Office Counters in the UK and a publishing company in London. In my free time, I love to read historical novels and am a keen singer, both in choirs and also solo in jazz jam sessions.
