My name is Jaime Selwood and I was born in Oxford, England. However my hometown is Ellington in the North-East of England, near the city of Newcastle. I have been living in Hiroshima, and Japan, for nearly 17 years and I have been teaching at Hiroshima University for 14 years. My hobbies include football, golf, reading and mahjong but I don't like baseball - too boring! (But - Go Carp!). My favourite football team is Manchester United and my favourite location in the world is Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland. On my Office door you will find a poster of the London 2012 Olympic Games - because I went to the Olympic Stadium in 2012!
