He is fluent in several languages and became an American citizen in 1974. He has had the opportunity to live on three continents, in 8 countries, 15 States, one Province and Puerto Rico along with 23 cities - all as a result of his work in the hospitality industry.

Denied by his Father to attend the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, he entered his Father's industry and graduated from the Hotel School in Lausanne, Switzerland and spent much of his life operating hotels ending up as CEO of a small hotel company. Deciding in 2003 to follow his dream, he studied privately for 3 years.
