Thoughts on my (German) accent?

I have been studying German for a while and I would really like to know how I sound to others before I do anything drastic, like decide to move to Germany. Specifically, I am curious as to what my accent sounds like, as I do not think I have a particularly good ear for accents myself. What country do you think I come from? What do you think is my native language? If I sound at all German, do I speak with the accent of a particular region? Or is my foreign accent too strong?

If you are a German speaker (especially a native speaker or someone who has lived in Germany), and you have two minutes to listen to me talk, I would really appreciate your feedback.
