Anders Larsen was born in Beirut, of Danish/Irish parentage. He spent his early years travelling, then got stuck in the habit and just carried on. He has taught English in Abu Dhabi and Mexico, played volleyball for Ireland, and had jobs ranging from lavatory cleaner in New York to demolition worker in Munich. But he is not - nor has he ever been - a barber. He currently lives in Ireland with his family, where he practises Karate and wishes it didn't rain so much.
