Citizen of the World

I consider myself a citizen of the world, because I consider no one country my home. I am from anywhere and everywhere ("wherever I lay my head, that is my home").

The easiest question you can ask most people is, "Where are you from?" That is one of the most difficult questions to ask me. I have given up on trying to explain or to choose a country. I have never lived for more than five years in a single country. I have lived on four continents and 56 countries to date (see: World Travels). I have been traveling since the day I was born. This is also true of everyone in my immediate family.

I am a cosmopolitan in every sense of the word. I call where I was born or my citizenship an "accidental association or concept". I am multicultural, a Third Culture Kid, and at-home in almost any setting in just about any country.
