Maia Newley Left-leaning, vegetarian Buddhist with way too many opinions which I never learned to keep to myself!

I write a bit, direct a bit and wander about a lot. Very left-leaning vegetarian, Theravadin Buddhist, all round soft-touch with way too many opinions which I never learned to keep to myself!

I run an independent film production company which is based both in the UK and the US and makes biographical documentary films.

I'm a forensic psychologist by trade and have written in the past on subjects which include feminism, adults with learning difficulties, American school shootings, gender, crime and justice.

I'm 47 and an American Brit (Dual National, born in NYC, live in both countries).
