Before I started teaching english I was in marketing and sales in the United States as well as a business owner. I grew up in a small town in northern Idaho very close to the Canadian border. I was always a very curious child and had to know just about everything I could. In my teenage years I was eager to leave home to make my way in the world and that's just what I did, by the time I was fourteen I had left my parents home and started working to support myself through high school. After high school i took a scholarship for my wrestling efforts and took the offer at a local community college. After my college experience I decided I wanted to visit the bigger world and headed straight for California, one of America's most influential states! After my first taste of travel I could not get enough, my work let me see nearly every city in America in just under five years. Having become bored with the states and my sales I decided it was time for a change and since my best friend was getting married in Poland in just under three months I decided to come to Poland for a new start!
