I’m a half-Sicilian half-Chinese Canadian who has also lived in Australia and England.

I’ve had the pleasure of travelling across Canada, U.S., Mexico, U.K, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Hong Kong and China.  There is still so much of the world I want to discover as I believe some of life’s greatest lessons come from immersing yourself in other cultures.

During my travels, I came across three places that I truly call home. New Zealand is one of them. I find the Māori language quite beautiful. One phrases that lingers is “Kore rawa e rawaka te reo kotahi”, which translates to “One language is never enough.” This one sentence speaks to me on many levels and I hope to share my thoughts on the issue in the upcoming posts.

In the meantime, I hope you will enjoy my little musings on film, tv, music, photography, art, theatre, travel, education, law, technology, geekery, news, politics and the environment.
