I was born in Nairobi, Kenya and moved to Canada as a toddler. As soon as I got my BA I took and ended up in East Asia where I spent nearly a decade in education while travelling the world.
I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2013 at 29 years old. At the time I was a managing partner in a Chinese education company in Shanghai. I stuck around for a few more years but soon realized that this disease wasn't going to take of itself, I also developed a thirst to learn as much as I could about what was happening to me. I left China in the summer of 2016 to devote myself to learning as much I could about the disease and how I might be able to make an impact on the wider PD community. I have since traveled the world meeting experts and sharing what I have learned through my site, tmrwedition.com.
