I offer: I live, work and tutor here in Cluj, Romania. My decision to move out here is mostly connected to my lifetime work for a better world.
Among my numerous qualifications to-date are a doctoral degree in Psychology and another in Forensic Psychology, the latter is my speciality.
Finding weak links - 'People' , 'Associations' , 'Behaviour patterns' - Or - 'Glitches' , 'Flaws' etc.
These are all carried out whilst I am 'Visibly Invisible' to all - Client communication is via a chosen route selected by them.
Blending in and providing follow-up feedback as necessary or noticed, justifies my 'Motto' - Worse than a dog with a bone!'
Like most Brits, I am a well-travelled person. Like most "Crazy Brits", I am in constant search for opportunities to help people who want to bring change into their lives. It is not an easy task and I use all the learning and knowledge I've gathered as a persistent observer of human nature and behaviour. I publish regularly articles on the Internet (?)
Therefore, helping people help themselves represents a great part of my life and work to date. My book covering this topic entitled A Better Life For You! - Your New Independence Day? (ISBN: 142086811X, 13 9781420868111), was published in August 2005. My method consists of building up a casual dialogue with my potential readers prompting them to do their best and use their mental ability and physical energy in order to improve their lives. The book written in the 3rd party with English to match is/ was an exciting challenge.
One of my major strengths has proven to be the belief that we are constantly learning. Actually, by retaining knowledge at the correct time and behaving sensibly, we will soon be able to reach the very valuable target that we currently striving to reach in our own lives
My insatiable intellectual curiosity and forward thinking has made me find a new professional niche for my skills and expertise. I am carrying out regular research on Internet behaviour and its effects on users of said, both on and off line, especially where abuse of others overflows into daily life and creates problems in everyday public and private life.
I recently participated in an international workshop dedicated to Internet Safety, organised by the Faculty of Sociology and Social Work of Babes-Bolyai University. The rocketing number of unsafe (especially child and teen) Internet users, particularly in the ex-communist countries, represents a challenge for specialists in social sciences. It is a kind of "red alert" for all responsible citizens. I intend to further specialise in Cyber-Psychology in order to be able to offer my "upgraded" services to all those interested.
My experiences with the problems of 'Dark Side' of the Internet as 'Cora Stam' called it, is not just with the youth of today. The issue sadly covers all age groups, many of the issues are interlinked.
My friends say that my good-humoured personal style and dedication to human well-being have proven excellent ingredients for success.
For starters, I have an interesting list of... (Why didn't I think of that?). Ideas and suggestions you can easily apply to improve your own WWW safety. It can be very easily applied to everyone's routine and fits all, without exemption, please request a copy of said from me if you so wish.
I am engaged to Dr. Cristina Felea, University teacher and EU registered literature translator, (Daughter of now sadly deceased Romanian Writer, Poet , and Critic 'Victor Felea) we
are both very happy to nurture and raise our 20-year son Mihai who has Down's syndrome.

Sometimes the answer you are looking for is so obvious that you fail to see it - The best place to hide something is under your nose - The Internet is in such a place and we rely on a bit of silicon to keep us safe. Not so unfortunately, please feel free to ask if a 'headache' is round, that eludes you, it can be cured.
