I'm open-minded, laid-back, curious, witty, liberal, playful, sympathetic and nonconformist.
I have an inquisitive mind and enjoy reading and researching about various subjects, especially those related to humanities. I like learning languages and studying other cultures.
I am a traveler rather than a tourist. Always with my camera, I am a keen photographer.
I love hiking and I prefer to walk in the mountains rather than lie on the beach. However, I do enjoy snorkeling and I wouldn't mind learning to scuba-dive. I love the sea and traveling by boat.
As the academic I am, I am definitely on the intellectual side, but can also see the funny side of life.
My intellectual passion is historical linguistics, especially Indo-European and Romance linguistics. I love all things related to language. Ethnic and cultural diversity fascinates me.
But I also take an interest in biology, history, psychology, anthropology and philosophy, including Eastern philosophies (especially Zen Buddhism).
Social justice and equality are major values in my life and in relation to them I have a very active interest in politics. My political stance is pretty liberal and nonconformist, I'm into social ecology and in favor of animal rights and linguistic equality.
Mi estas en favoro de la lingva egaleco, pro tio mi estas esperantisto. Kvankam Esperanto ne estas perfekta, ĝis nun ĝi ege superas ĉiun rivalon en la sfero de egaleca tutmonda komunikado.
