I was born and raised in Montreal, later moving to Toronto and other parts of Ontario. I spent years working in the financial sector, then discovered the Internet in 1996 and soon became a consultant, a business that still pays my bills today. Making a living from the Internet is significant because it eventually allowed me to live practically anywhere in the world, as my physical location was not that important business-wise.
In 2001, I decided I did not want to endure the harsh Canadian weather and resettled on the island of Cozumel, Mexico. My hunger for exotic surroundings did not stop there, as I later made my home in Argentina, Spain (Canary Islands), Mauritius, and finally Colombia.
I still maintain a home in Windsor (Ontario), Canada, and another in Florida, but my family, namely my wife and 2 year old daughter, is anchored in Medellin.
Recently I visited Villa de Leyva, the historic town in the state of Boyaca. I also made a quick side trip to Ráquira, the colorful village famous for its ceramics that lies only 45 minutes away by road.
