As the first full time manager of the Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce, he is eminently well placed to provide well rounded and balanced comment. Not just current affairs, but also a look at a family spread across the globe and the expat issues that raise their heads in everyday life.

With a PO box in Hell (literally) her posts will make you laugh and ugly cry in equal measure.
