Born and raised in Germany and educated in my native land, Japan, the US and the UK, I have lived and worked in more than half a dozen countries since I graduated from university in 1996. I am married to a Mexican. My two kids are experiencing very different childhoods from the ones of my husband and myself – being binational by birth and at least tricultural by their backgrounds and lives so far.
I am a trained radio, television, print and online journalist and have been covering business, politics, international law, development, sustainability and cross-cultural issues during my career. I have also worked in project management, communications, public relations, knowledge management, consultancy and shipping.
Being a professional, a woman, a wife, a mother and a generally interested human being, I would like http://www.thedailyimperfections.com to be a site of ideas, inspiration and discussions on a whole range of subjects.
