I was born in Lausanne, Switzerland.
I studied at a military academy, but I was expelled after having slapped a teacher.
Later on, to avoid being drafted for military service, I traveled around Europe and America using different identities at the same time, with the relative forged documents.
After years of being a vagabond, I moved to France, where I began a career as a professional boxer.
Currently I’m wandering about the Gulf of Mexico on a small sailboat, without a destination.
