Biography

I first moved to Central Europe just two years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and have since then observed the region as it travelled, and still travels, on its long and difficult transformation process.
For a number of years I taught history and English on my travels but moved into journalism about 15 years ago. Since then I've worked for a number of English-language magazines based in Poland, and have become a regular contributor to the British press on Polish and Central European affairs.
Before leaving the UK, I somehow managed to get a degree in international relations and politics.
