About Me
I am a Canadian lawyer from Toronto, moved to Panama in 2007.

My wife and I have 12 rescue dogs and 3 rescue cats. If you decide to move to Panama, you need to rescue at least one dog or cat. It's the law!


I live in the city of David, Chiriqui Province, which, as everyone knows, is the most beautiful province of Panama with the smartest people, the juiciest oranges, the most diverse landscapes, and the best agricultural land.

Ok, so not everyone knows that, but I do, and now you do too!
Where I’m From
Toronto, Canada
Where I Live Now
David, Chiriqui Province, Panama

I moved to Panama from Toronto in July, 2007, but the airline I flew on would not take my dog Roscoe -- something about the summer heat being too much for animals in the cargo hold. So I ended up having to ship Roscoe by a different airline to San Jose, Costa Ric... Read More
My first trip to Panama was an accident. I had originally planned a holiday in the Brazilian Amazon. I like tropical jungles – big, green, humid things with massive, towering trees, snakes, and animals whose names I do not know and cannot pronounce. The strangene... Read More
