Simply, I really enjoy what I do. As an extension, officiating has given me the opportunity to interact with people, all kinds, from different parts of the world. It has given me the opportunity to be exposed to different cultures and to observe, learn and bring back those experiences to my roles as an administrator, player and even employee”.
