Favorite Quote
  • "No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite." - Nelson Mandela
What I Like Most About VIN
  • The friendly, enthusiastic and respectful atmosphere; the sense of community and the feeling that we all just want to do our best as professionals and try to help each other achieve this; being able to cross the Atlantic with one mouse click and minute carbon foot-print.
