Interests: My Interests:

This life is such a great gift. I like meeting new people and making new friends. The majority of the world's most successful people, like Steve Jobs, were self-taught. I taught myself how to build websites and edit videos. Before I knew it, I was working with Larry Marshall, a top commercial producer - making and editing videos on my Mac for big companies. I made websites for medical professionals and chiropractors.

I spent years exploring Canada, America, Scandinavia, Netherlands, France, Spain and Morocco (where I currently reside). We have a such a big world - and right now, I want to make new friends in the great and beautiful China! Maybe one day I'll even visit!

I like hiking in the woods. My wife and I love going to Azrou & Ifrane - the little Switzerland of Morocco. The pine trees 🌲are like those in Canada and they even have monkeys 🐵🙈🙉🙊🐒that live in the forest!

The southern city of Agadir is very hot. There are sandy beaches for as long as the eye can see. Taghazout is the main attraction if you're interested in swimming and the Marina in Centre-ville Agadir is a place to behold at night.

I like reading books and learning new things all the time. I like playing Clash Royale on my iPhone. I like building websites in my spare time.

My wife and I like going for hikes in the woods and I'll have many podcasts to share about these experiences.

I look forward to getting to know you and having great conversations.
