I was born in New Zealand and have spent 30 years living oversea in Indonesia, Singapore, Guatemala and Perth. I have finally returned home to New Zealand and am loving it. I have brought my Aussie husband Joe back with me. Our passions are dancing and exploring beautiful New Zealand. I spend alot of time in my hobby of stone carving.
