So many! I love new and vintage design books, sunset and
architectural magazines, coffee table books on artists, spiritual
ideas, astrology and sports cars. Thank you Stieg Larsson—loved the
Millenium Trilogy. I consume movies that make me imagine and feel,
movies that wander away from the industry formula and have
something new to say. I want movies to move me—it could be a topic,
scene, acting, lighting or cinematography, but something about the
movie needs to touch my heart and mind. I prefer matinees unless
the person holding my hand really wants to get to a night showing.
I don’t have a favorite genre so I’m always absorbing a full range
of topics and approaches, always checking IMDB for information,
always trying new things.(Paraisos.Artificiais, Upside Down)
I breathe for music tracks that make a room, a car journey or the
world revolve. For me, there is no better joy than seeing people
dancing and smiling with their eyes closed. Being a drummer I’m
motivated by the subtleties of rhythm. Always exploring progressive
house and trance, down tempo, atmosphere chill, Arabic groove.
Depending on my mood and what I’m doing—working at home or spinning
at an event or driving without a destination in mind—I enjoy
Buddha-Bar, Beat Pharmacy, Hernan Cattaneo, Hiatus, Polica, Carl
Leukaufe, Jame Lavelle, Bonobo, Tama Impala, BRMC, Black Angels,
Dave Seaman, Ulrich Schnauss, Digable Planets, Tiësto, Mogwai,
Darren Emerson, Tycho, Keane, Thievery Corporation, Kula Shaker,
Sigur Ros, The Verve, Trentemoller, Mazzy Star, Maya Jane Coles,
Milt Jackson, Mogwai, Martina Topley-Bird, Submotion Orchestra,
Massive Attack, Nouvelle Vague, Tricky, Transglobal Underground,
Jamiroquai, Junip, Yppah, and Wax Tailor to name but a few.
As for food, can’t survive without all types of Asian, sushi, fish,
inventive salads, raw smoothies and Mediterranean food. I crave
healthy cuisine and gravitate toward organic-minded cooking—from
raw food to truffle oil infused grass fed burger. I enjoy creating
novel dishes based on what’s it in fridge—but make killer fish
tacos. And I have to say, there is nothing sexier than cooking
together for gatherings of people and chatting the night away.
These are the times when I am truly in my element.
