Outside Dinte

Fun fact that people wouldn’t know about me: If it wasn't for going walkabout in Bolivia in the 1980's when a political coup suddenly broke out, I would never have moved to the USA, never met my wife from New York City, never raised our three beautiful children, never created Dinte Executive Search, and never become the Global Chairman for IIC Partners. Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if I had gone to Peru instead!

Had to renew my passport before going to: Namibia on a recent Dinte boys trip, an air safari in a single engine Cessna, with my two sons. Having traveled to more than 60 countries in the world, The Skeleton Coast in Namibia is truly the remotest part of the world ever visited by the Dinte boys. We even played an awesome round of golf on one of the few golf courses in all of Namibia. Our rule is that we play golf in every country we visit.

Food Trucks or Take Out: Neither, my 17 year old daughter is the best baker I know! I especially like the way she prepares cupcakes!
