Ran doesn't really have a favorite class, but the classes he delivers have a kind of process or story. The story ranges from installing, developing Routing to be used in the business operations, monitoring the business by applying Reporting and helping to run the business using Workforce.
Ran states that "As you get older, the hobbies start to roll in." In his case, he enjoys fixing his garden and loves making BBQ on his own. He is a football fan (not NFL) and supports Liverpool's greatest European Champions. He does love NFL and he watched a live game [San Francisco 49ers] when they came to UK Wembley to play against Washington Redskins. His other hobbies include maintaining "Queenie" his Maine Coon Cat. A little fun fact about Ran is that when he was 18 years old, he won a bodybuilding competition held in his town.
Ran loves travelling to hot places. He has so many nice spots he visits such has Barbados, Dubai, Bali and Australia. He is a beach guy and loves sleeping and listening to the sea and watching sunset and sunrises. It's all about relaxing for Ran.
Ran is currently based in the UK just slightly outside London in a small town called Hayes. Before the pandemic, he was based in the Genesys Office in Frimley. His classes are all run out of his little bedroom now. It's just him and his cat. His town is famous for manufacturing vinyl and best known as the erstwhile home of EMI. The words "Hayes, Middlesex" appear on the reverse of The Beatles' albums, which were manufactured at the town's Old Vinyl Factory.
