Sorry I have been a bit disconnected lately but there has been many great changes and I want to re-start again my reach and keep you updated on what's happening in my life.
Kate and I have decided to move our family to Manhattan in New York. Though we leave the great city of Seattle with heavy hearts we are also excited at the many opportunities that we will find in one of the largest and most vibrant cities in the world.
As I reflect on my time here in Seattle I feel thankful for the many relationships we have built here. When I came here from Peru I was not sure what to expect. My first thoughts were of iconic music, gray clouds, and gortex covered people running to escape the rain and cold. While these characteristics were certainly present, I also found warm friendly people always willing to welcome me into their homes. I met supportive public officials and personalities and was overcome with the beauty of a landscape that can only be described as paradise.
While Peru is the place where I call home, Washington state will remain ever present as a foundational place in my life. It is the city where I married my wife, where my beautiful little girl was born, and the place where I first placed skis on my feet.
The Roberto Carcelén Foundation will remain based in Seattle and I look forward to visiting here often. Our foundation is a global effort and I feel that New York City is a great place for me to continue to raise awareness for the foundation’s mission and networking. I will continue to travel from New York to Seattle and Peru and I am excited at the many opportunities that await us here.
As we get situated in this new adventure, we'll be updating you more often. Until then...
