One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Going to the Winter Olympics in Utah, USA was pretty unbelievable!

I almost got struck by lightning while backpacking at a very high altitude in the Sierra Nevadas (California/Nevada), which was very intense but gave me a new appreciation for life.

Bungee jumping in New Zealand was an awesome adrenaline rush...

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach skiing and a few other sports, & talk about psychology and global issues. I used to play piano and quite well and also drums, but it has been a while... I am going to try to pick them up again soon
