Originally from Eastern Europe, I was very involved in pro-democracy movements which lead to the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of the cold war. I moved to Belgium and studied business. I have always worked with foundations and charities - pro-democracy, youth and culture, intellectual disabilities and sports. Then I sailed around the world on my sailing boat to discover other cultures and learn from them and about myself.
Sharing, contributing, connecting.
In my opinion the ugliest thing which humanity allowed to happen during my lifetime is the genocite in Rwanda. I feel in debt for not having made a personal contribution so we all learn from that and right other wrongs. Poverty, lack of clean water, preventable disease are man-made and can be eradicated.
I'm proud of:
My growing son. Through my work at Special Olympics I helped 200,000 people with intellectual disabilities, their families and communities have a better life.
