About Me
Panama immediately captivated me when I first arrived in 1998. It was a country full of potential and opportunity, which made me want to explore deeper and find out everything I could. For the next 9 years I used Panama as a base while working for an adventure travel company and exploring every corner of Latin America.

In 2007 I decided to settle down from my nomadic life, and of all the countries in Latin America I chose Panama as my new home. This was based on the stability of the economy, no threat of major natural disasters, friendliness of the culture, and ease of conducting business. Panama was definitely the place for me and where I would put down roots and start a family.

Now 8 years later I am married to my beautiful Panamanian wife, own one of Panama’s most successful real estate companies and just opened a store specializing in custom designed solid wood furniture. Panama has definitely exceeded all my expectations and continues to captivate my heart and soul.
