Born in Romania, I am the only son of a father who is a rocket scientist and a mother who is an archeologist, big shoes to fill. I graduated high school in Los Angeles but not before earning my Eagle Scout. I then attended the University of California in San Diego, earning a Bachelor in Art in Psychology while working on campus for four years as a Community Service Officer and off campus as a California State Beach Lifeguard and later as a Emergency Medical Technician. After university, I worked for Ralph Lauren doing everything from sales in their stores in Chicago and San Diego to modeling and even fashion photography.聽

Still I felt that there was more for me to do. I set my sights on becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic and was accepted to the prestigious Southern California University of Health Sciences where I received my Doctorate in Chiropractic in four short years. While there, I was elected class representative and traveled to Washington DC to lobby for bills involving chiropractic affairs. I continued to lobby both in Sacramento and in DC, was inducted into DTA honor fraternity, and graduated on the Dean’s list.聽

That is when my education really started. After getting licensed and fully insured, I realized that I wanted to help my patients perform at even higher levels of performance. So I got certified as a Physiotherapist and a Sports Conditioning Specialist focussing on golf and triathlete/ surfer injuries. With these sets of skills, I now help extraordinary people lead extraordinary lives.聽

My interests in health include the physical and psychological aspects of the human condition. I believe that a strong mind and body are conducive to reducing stress, optimizing health, and enhancing performance. All these together add to my patients longevity to help them rejuvenate, succeed and enjoy life to their fullest. As a Doctor of Chiropractor, it is my goal to educate and lead by example. I now wish to work within your community to optimize its health and well being. My approach to wellness is one in which the diversity of the individual dictates individual attention with unconditional positive regard and respect.聽

Wishing you a lifetime of success,聽

Doctor Codrin

Mikheil Saakashvili : Where Are My Western Friends?
Anna Nemtsova

NEWSWEEK

From the magazine issue dated Apr 20, 2009

In the largest opposition demonstration in Georgia since November 2007— WHEN President Mikheil Saakashvili tested his democratic credentials by sending in riot police to quash the protests—tens of thousands of people filled Tbilisi's leafy Rustaveli Avenue last Thursday to demand Saakashvili's resignation. The president retreated to his residence, where he spoke with NEWSWEEK's Anna Nemtsova about the crowds on the street, his difficult relationship with Russia and how the West has largely abandoned him in recent months. Excerpts:

Nemtsova: Who wants your resignation?
Saakashvili: Mostly unemployed people. We fired about 250,000 people as a result of our reforms. A big percentage of these people have not managed to find themselves in the new economy. Fighting corruption and crime, we put thousands of people in jail. In Tbilisi alone we convicted 8,000 people; all of their relatives are outside today, asking me to resign.

What is the most painful part of the criticism?
I am not hurt by the criticism in Georgia, as I am hearing it from two opposition TV channels all day long. I did not expect the West to put all the relationships with us on hold while waiting for this revolution. An official delegation from France decided to postpone their visit. A Turkish company moved a scheduled contract signing until after April 9, and an Arab company until April 12. What is the matter with these people? Do we stop going to Paris or Strasbourg during their street protests?

Who sponsors the Georgian opposition?
Most of the money—millions of dollars—comes from Russian oligarchs. I have documentary proof of that, which I am not making public yet. Whether the money is being sent from Russia under the supervision of the Russian government, that I do not know.

Some experts predict a new military conflict as a result of social instability in Georgia. How possible is it that Russia and Georgia will begin another war?
The Russian government would probably be happy to see me leave the post. I could suppose that some of the military authorities in Russia think of attacking Georgia today, to say later that it was me who invaded Russia to distract the attention of my opposition. A week ago Russian tanks arrived in South Ossetia. We have information that there are about 5,000 Russian troops in the territory of South Ossetia, and 5,000 troops in Abkhazia.

Do you think President Medvedev would support the idea of another war with Georgia?
I do not think he would appreciate such an idea, as I saw how happy he was when President Obama gave him half of a smile. Russia heard clearly Obama's characterization of the August war. He called it “invasion,” and by that one word Obama drew a red line between Russia and Georgia. Neither Putin nor Medvedev is interested in crossing it again today.

Do you think it is possible that the Russian and American presidents might make a deal over Georgia? How do you think U.S. politics will affect Georgia under the new president?
The Kremlin might make an attempt to agree with Obama—say, that Russia helps the U.S. in Afghanistan, Iran and Central Asia, and the U.S. helps Russia to achieve their geopolitical interests in this territory, to help Russia change leadership in this country. For many, I seem to be a dead end for relations with Russia. I used to be much more charmed by U.S. politics.

Who are your supporters in the U.S. today?
I have quite a few good contacts. Of course, my best friend was always John McCain. You can say he is Georgian already. We expect McCain to come and visit us in a week or so. I have good relationships with Hillary Clinton, Joseph Biden and especially Richard Holbrooke—he is my teacher. I learned a lot of great things from him.

Do you feel that the West is disappointed with you? Have you been in touch with President Obama yet?
Oh, yes, I have talked to him on the phone. The problem is not about us—the problem is about their own internal politics. We have integrated into U.S. internal politics. So during the change of power, there was some sort of vacuum in America. Nobody knew what to do with us. Everybody, including France, was waiting for Obama's guideline on what to do about Georgia. I admire American ideas. I used to idealize America under Bush, when ideas were above pragmatic politics. Now it is a new time, when pragmatic politics are in charge of ideas. That might spoil the America I know.

Would your policy with Russia be different now if you could turn time back?
Moscow blamed us for not keeping our promises. I am not sure what could be done now. I could hardly do anything differently. The values we appreciate are not embraced by Russia. Should I have compromised? If I did, we would have been like Kyrgyzstan, losing our democratic values now, or as poor as Armenia, whose economy fully depends on Russia. Just as our politics have been independent from the Kremlin all these years, we will handle the demonstrations as if the Russian issue did not exist, and Russia as if the demonstrations did not exist.
