    Hi all,
    my name is Julien, 37, and I've lived in Bangkok, Thailand for 6+ years now.
    My mom is from southern France while my dad is from eastern Canada. I was born in France but have lived in Canada for about 20 years, longer than in any other country. I've also lived in Germany for a bit.
    You may have guessed I enjoy travelling!
    I'm married and have a 10-year old daughter. My wife is an ophthalmologist and my daughter studies in a bilingual school.
    Though I used to work in the banking industry in Canada, I'm now the (proud!) owner of Modulo Language School and its affiliates (Modulo Publishing/Modulo Corporate).
    I'm also about to launch a new education job website (omni.career) because, as a regular user, I think ajarn.com lacks much needed functionality.
    As I've said, I love travelling. I typically work a lot, 6-7 days a week for a few weeks/months, then go out of town for a few days or a couple of weeks. I've been to many, many places in Thailand and around the world.
    I enjoy watching movies with my family. I'm kind of a geek/nerd and still regularly play video games (and don't intend to stop anytime soon!). My wife and I also enjoy board games.
    I love languages, as my occupation may have hinted at, but my Thai still needs a lot of...refinement!

    People post a lot of useful information, and you can get a feel for what it going on in education across the country.

    Electro shock therapy wouldn't hurt AF.
    If anybody in Thailand gives you any merdre, we're here to help.

    Good luck with the business.
