I live in South Africa, in a quaint coastal city called Port Elizabeth.
After leaving school, I joined a pop band, touring casinos as a professional singer for three years.
Once the tour ended, I studied software development, eventually obtaining a BSC Computer Science degree.
To earn extra cash as a teenager, I worked at a toy store, a drive-inn theatre, and a horse racing track.
My school mates received weekly chapters of the romantic novels I wrote in junior school.
I sometimes think my son should audition as a stand-up comedian. Seriously.
I was a passenger in a bigfoot called 'Grave Digger' at an exhibition at the Bubba raceway in Florida.
Within one year, I visited an F1 Grand Prix, a Le Mans endurance race, and a Nascar race.
At a club race, I drove a B-Mod, 4-link V8 race car around the dirt oval track.
I've been promised expensive perfume by my race-crazy husband for mentioning the last few facts.
In 2012, I appeared in five episodes of a TV competition as a guitar player in an all-girl band.
Four of my original songs are currently playing on local radio stations.
Clients couldn't understand my British-English accent on the phone when I moved to Atlanta - GA.

My husband and I opened a software development company called COMPRSA twenty years ago. We employ 70 talented staff members, and work with Fortune 500 clients in America, Europe, the UK and Australia.
