About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To understand the world by meeting people with different cultures as well with different views, interests and goals.

ABOUT ME

I am retired. I take time to live and even to do nothing if I wish. I am very curious on almost every subject. Open minded and easy to get on with. In my productive years, I worked as teacher in biology (physiology), pharmaceutical sales representative. I had some businesses (real estate and travel). In the last 15 years, I worked in accounting and financial departments in health organizations.

PHILOSOPHY

Live and let live.
The cheapest lifting: to laugh
"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give" (Churchill)
"I can resist anything except temptation" (Oscar Wilde)
