About me! I have always had an insatiable passion for travel and exploration. The thrill of discovering new countries and experiencing diverse cultures has been the driving force behind my journeys across various continents. From the bustling streets of Philadelphia to the serene landscapes of Kyrgyzstan, I have eagerly immersed myself in the beauty and richness of different lands. But that's not all—I have also found great joy in sharing my knowledge and experiences as a tourist guide. The opportunity to engage with fellow travelers and provide them with fascinating stories, historical anecdotes, and a deeper understanding of the places we visit has been truly fulfilling. It brings me immense satisfaction to see the wonder in their eyes and the appreciation they develop for the world's diverse cultures. In addition to my adventures as a traveler and guide, my academic pursuits have played a significant role in shaping my journey. I am proud to share that I have published an extensive collection of 50 books, covering a wide range of subjects. From theater and philosophy to poetry, novels, short stories, and essays, each work reflects my deep understanding and profound insights into the human experience. It is my sincere desire to share these thoughts and perspectives with others, to provoke contemplation and inspire meaningful conversations. My search for knowledge was rewarded in 2011, when God anointed me as a Prophet, giving me the holy gifts of healing, protection while travelling and speaking the truth. But far from being a preacher, I'm just a traveller in search of meeting new places and new people.
