Give me a book and you'll make me happy!! I love reading: books,
newspapers, economic magazines...Knowledge is power!! I'm lucky
because in my work I have to read a lot in order to have ideas to
solve problems and to improve the business management.
The first book that I read that made an impact on me was "Gods,
Graves and Scholars: The Story of Archaeology" by C.W. Ceram. I
read it when I was 9 or 10 years old and since then history and
archeology have been some of my favorites subjects. Now I'm reading
"Empire: How Spain became a world power" by Henry Kamen and "Land
of promise: an economic history of the USA" by Michael Lind
(Finally I found a book about the economic history of the USA!)
Once I even thought in studying a PhD in economic history.
At nights, when I'm tired, I like to read novels. My favorite
writers are Noah Gordon and Ken Follet. I found "The Physician" by
Noah Gordon amazing. It encouraged me to travel and study abroad,
I don't really like poetry but once I read a poem("Invictus") by
William Ernet Benley that inspires me every day. It finishes like
"I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul"
I like different kinds of music: classical, pop, rock... but never
techno or house music!! I listen a lot to classical music. There
are some pieces that I love like "Lacrimosa" from Mozart's Requiem,
"Allegretto" from Beethoven's 7th symphony or Wagner's
Some of my favorites movies are from the 80's: Indiana Jones, Back
to the future...They remind me when I was a kid and I used to go to
the movies with my friends.
I like all types of food and I try to eat healthy.
