Bio of Murray Clive (穆雷克)

04-10-2012 14:59 BJT

I grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa. Spent much of my intelligible youth locked away in a boarding school on the other side of the country. Studied Computer Science at university. Three days after my final exam I left in order to travel the world - basically, to find a more fitting quality of life.

I lived in Canada for 18 months where I fell in love with acting. But I still wanted to travel more and so headed east perusing a bunch of countries along the way before setting up base camp in Taiwan - a great place but no suitable work opportunities. And finally, I ended up in Beijing, a city that I happily call my new home. Acted in a few Chinese shows as well as a few plays before finding myself at Rediscovering China. By far the coolest job I have ever had.
