I'm a 57 year old male international environmental lawyer. I have lived in Europe and the US for much of my life but now I mainly live in New Zealand, in theory - but I travel a great deal to international meetings; mainly in NY but also all over the place. I'm lucky enough to live in the South Island so I'm torn between the mountains and the ocean, so I also ski, sail, hike (tramp) and sea kayak.
