Bio

I was born and rasied on the beautiful island of Grand Bahama, Bahamas and left there when I was 17 to attend highschool in Altena, Germany. I lived and studied there for a year then I returned to the Bahamas to work as a German translator at an all inclusive resort. I then left to attend college in Cleveland, TN.

I am married and have one daughter who keeps me very busy. I consider myself to be a world travelor. I've visited more than 30 countries on 4 different continents and can fluently speak German. I love meeting new people and learning new things.
