Claire Bolden McGill
United States

Who are you?

This is an excellent question, because I am truly a different person from the person who came to America three years ago from the UK. I had all this bottled up ambition, aspiration, energy and optimism to do something different with my life in the USA from that which I had back in England. I had had enough of 'normal' and wanted a life less normal and ordinary, and I was under no illusion that this would come to me if I simply sat on my arse watching daytime TV. The only person who can make things happen is you, and I did just that from the moment I landed at Washington airport. I did not want to be that desperate housewife, yearning for a life less ordinary - I was going to be the person who made sure that a life less ordinary happened.    more ...

Graham Dixon
United States

Who are you?

I’m a musician and writer from Britain with a background in 18th Century music, trumpet performance and creative writing. My folks instilled a love of traveling and before even starting university I had been all over Europe, visited Florida and crossed the date line to explore the Pacific. After finishing my Oxford degree and spending a year in London for my Master’s, I decided to volunteer with VSO and work in China. A two-year contract became five years in Asia, traveling and writing throughout, toward the end of which I met Jenny, my wife-to-be.

Where, when and why did you move abroad?

Jenny and I set up home in England in 2006, had a fantastic wedding and petitioned the USCIS for a Green Card.    more ...
