I like my private jets, counting my millions, winning body-building contests, belly dancing - the usual. I'm actually kidding about some of that ;- What I really like to focus on is being the best man I can be, and I want to create a great life and a strong and happy family with a good woman. I'm driven to gain new abilities and wisdom, grow as a person, and help people whose paths cross mine. Careerwise, I work in the aerospace industry, and outside of this one of my passions is producing films. I'm a happy and giving person by nature and principle. I'm part introvert and part extrovert, and in the beginning I tend to do a little more listening than talking, or vice versa : I exercise, eat right, and have never felt more terrific than I do now.
