Soon to be new arrival

Hello to everyone. My name is Brett and I am originally from Maryland. I have lived in Charlotte, NC, USA for the past 12 years which is where I was when I met my beautiful Swiss wife. After years of discussion and the birth of our son, Samuel (now 2), we have decided to make the move.

I am terrified and excited all at the same time. I have a wide background of skills and vocations but have no idea how I will turn any of those things into a job. I have a background in education having taught for twenty years. I have also served as an Olympic development soccer coach and certified fitness trainer. Currently I own my own home improvement and remodeling company.
I love music, writing, hiking and backpacking, craft beer, good scotch and an occasional cigar. Somewhere in all that I am sure that I will find something to do

I am looking forward to finding new friends and shared interests.

Hi and Welcome to the forum Brett.

With a Swiss wife and that wide range of skills, it shows that you're adaptable and hard working. I hope everything goes well for you.

Re: Soon to be new arrival

Hello. We will be living in Effretikon. That's close to Winterthur and not far from Zurich. Where in the States did you come from?

Hi, and welcome to the forum!

Looks like you need to try either underwater hockey or underwater rugby, to round out that CV of yours ...
