I have experienced an Extraordinary life of travels and a diverse of encounters, meeting the most intriguing people, who have crossed my life and made positive impacts either by their own life they choose to share, or just from sharing their own perspective of their life's journey. Prior, to my residing in America, I worked a short period of time in Switzerland and also in Germany, where I experienced more travels and also being there when the Berlin Wall came down - it was a marvelous experience to witness such a historical time.
