David English is 48 years old and has lived in Mendoza for 17 . He was born in New York, but on September 11, 2001, his life, like that of thousands of Americans, changed forever. He says that seeing planes crashing at the World Trade Center and, at the same time, people playing tennis in Manhattan, as without knowing what happened, made him rethink his life.
In his words, the combination of a diversified economy, climate, mountains and viticulture, made him choose our country and Mendoza. He also ensures that Argentines have hospitality and many other virtues. And that's why he feels more Argentine than American. “Once a year I go to the United States for 10 days to visit my family. But I do it as a tourist, I see my own country with eyes of a foreigner. And as soon as I arrive, I'm already missing my friends .”
“The first time I came to Argentina was in 1998 . I was in Mendoza and almost all of Patagonia and fell in love. As soon as the Twin Towers happened, I didn't think twice. I already had plans to come back on vacation. But I changed my plans and decided to settle,” said the man. Finally, in 2002 it was finally settled in this province.
He is dedicated to establishing contacts and strengthening relations between universities in his country and the top studios in Argentina and Mendoza, especially. He also advises future investors who want to put their money in vineyards in Maipú, Luján or the Uco Valley.
And in his speech the common denominator is the praise for our society: “I always highlight the positive aspects of Argentines. I see you have an optimistic vision despite anything that's going on. There is solidarity , tolerance, good treatment of foreigners and immigrants in general.I have been insulted in England, Canada and Australia only for being an American. That doesn't happen here,” says the American.
