Teaching private security and health care professionals is not only a profession but also my passion. Just like teaching and organizing many foreign and international seminars and camps in Europe and Asia.
I also served as a judge in international competitions. As a trained vigilante, I've worked as a bouncer for years. I am working in the social field, as a matter of fact I've studied practical nurse and I am currently studying Bachelor of Social Services.
I really do believe the famous quotation of Albert Einstein that
"Any one who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."
