Since graduating from ISB I became a scuba diving instructor. I started working in Pattaya (10 years) and moved on to Phuket. After 14 years in the scuba diving business, I gave away my dive gear and looked for different work. I jumped from job to job not really liking anything in particular. I opened an automobile-workshop, this I stayed with for 7 years. After closing the workshop, I decided to move into the insurance business. Worked for a Thai insurance company as branch manager in Bangkok for 2 years. During that time, my knowledge of Thai improved dramatically.
