What I Love:

I love living experiences in nature — surfing in cold waters, road cycling, trail running are my favourites. Recently I started training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and I'm discovering that it's one of my true passions as well. Interacting with people, listening and learning fills me a lot. I play the guitar and I'm learning piano.
