I was born and raised in California. I came here to South Africa as a social entrepreneur, starting non-profit organisations, mostly involved in empowering youth from disadvantaged backgrounds. My wife, Sma, is Zulu (black), and is also involved in the non-profit sector. We have 2 kids (Alex - 5yrs and Ayanda - 1 1/2 yrs), and the older one (Alex) was born deaf, but is able to hear through cochlear implants (but not yet able to speak or understand much spoken language).
All my relatives are still in the USA, so we visit them occasionally.
