Hello, I`m Ray (the real spelling of my name). I was born and raised in the Philippines, came to Europe from the US in 1980 and have been a German citizen since 1990. Currently I reside in Switzerland. Professionally, before migrating to Switzerland I lived and worked in Germany for 24 years -mostly in the Travel Industry. To up my career chances I then moved to the United Kingdom in 2004 where I worked as a Customer Relations Supervisor and Compensations Analyst in the UK Travel Industry (Travel Agencies and Airline) until 2011. Having grown up in an English-speaking household and attended private schools where English was the method of instruction, I do not consider it a foreign language. I have undergraduate studies in Bachelor of Arts with English as my major-specializing in Literary Analysis and Critique and Sociology as my minor. As a professional in the Customer Relations field, I have corresponded in Business English and also German. In my free time, I write amongst others poetry and Opinion Essays in English. On the Literary FieId I also have written Short stories and a Novelette in the category historical fiction over Alexander the Great (from the movie Alexander) in a fan-based Website Fanfiction.Net under the penname Laurensis. I now am a retired professional, nevertheless it is my desire to keep my mental and intellectual faculties honed. I believe there is no better way to achieve this than by teaching. Not only imparting to students my accrued knowledge but as well as learning from their views and insights. Click for less
