A Bit of Background…

Welcome to my website! In the following pages I explore various sociological themes as they pertain to my family. One page presents my parents’ stories and reflects on how their upbringings shaped my own family life. Next I examine the childhood that my sister and I shared and the home environment that my parents cultivated. And finally I consider how our unusual position as expatriates might have influenced our family life.

I hope you enjoy learning about my family even half as much as I enjoyed preparing this story!
