2nd Chairman, Secretary, Printed Media

Married: 2 Children

Occupation: Product Manager

Reason for participation:
Those of us who have the possibilities to help and therefore also the responsibility, should not accept the fact that many Children in this so called modern world do not have the chance to grow up with love, role models, education, or even a future.  That is why I am thankful that I can help by supporting Anne and Sam in their work, so the children in Cambodia also get what I see as completely natural for my own sons.
