My Interest

First of all I love technology, finding out how things work is great. Love watching TV shows, movies and playing board games with my family. I spend quite a lot of time outside, either biking, playing tennis, or walking with my dog, this keeps me fresh for working environment. On a regular basis I am active at the local Internet Club, where I am a long-term board member.
