One of my mother’s favourite stories is about the time I disappeared at the age of three. After much panic and searching I was finally located a few kilometers from home, crossing a bridge on my push-bike. I’m not sure where I thought I was headed, but clearly from a young age I had a yearning to travel. I’ve always believed experiences are more valuable than material things, and I’ve spent a lot of my life indulging my love of adventure, and thrill for the unknown. After graduating from the Anglo European College in England, I spent three years working in London before taking a year to hitch-hike through Africa and ending up in Cape Town. What was supposed to be a short sojourn in the Mother City turned into eight years, during which time I developed an interest in acupuncture and took a year’s sabbatical to study in China. In 2001 I returned to Scandinavia, this time to southern Sweden where I joined an old friend in opening Malmö Chiropractic Clinic. It was here that I married my South African girlfriend, Susan and over the next few years had two daughters, Sophie and Elisabeth.
