I was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Just typing that sounds Cool! Then, raised in New Jersey, but grew up in Europe. Then went to Asia, and ended up in Arizona. Let me explain.
I went to a small set of schools in New Jersey. I am from South Jersey -- Bellmawr to be exact. Not the one further north where Bruce Springstein played. That one is spelled Belmar. New Jersey is a kind of divided State. There are three (3) Washington Townships.
One of the schools that I went to was Bishop Eustace Prep . It was all boys at the time. The present Web Site isn't the best. LOL!
I then went to a University in Philadelphia, Saint Joseph's. I graduated with a degree in Biology. Had my counselor told me to take another course -- Physical Chemistry -- I could have graduated in both Biology and Chemistry. Dual Degrees! Cool! As it stands -- I am a Bio-Chemist.
I hung around the Philly area, and took a course, or two at Widener University . I then went to Washington, DC for more studies @ American University . I've a few degrees in nothing really useful, so I took my show on the road. LOL!
First stop Germany, then Holland back to Germany, then a short while in Sweden. All of this was to make my degree useful. So far so good,
Some how my former education lead everyone to believe that I could speak German. Germany became home. Back to the US after a corporate take over, then back to Germany. Well, I do speak fluent German and as an American that seems to be a unique element to moving around as I have.
I out grew what I was doing in Germany, then down to Basle, Switzerland. I sort of discovered that Asia was an option, and went there. Got upset how things were going on Corporate wise and then went back to Germany. Then back to Asia. To be exact - Malaysia., where I ran Australia / New Zealand, the 13 countries in SE Asia, the Pacific Rim, northern Asia, Japan out to India
Meanwhile, my travels have taken me to over 80+ counties around the Globe, I did grow up Internationally.
All good clean fun! Seems my education did pay off in the end!
