I'm from Zurich, then moved to Italy, then back to Switzerland, and now to San Francisco, because I had the opportunity and it seemed a cool thing to do. Also, I've been an expat for most of my life, so I got used to it. Some of the perks are that you always get to complain about everything, and can feign ignorance and "cultural differences" when you screw up :-)
I work as a software engineer outside the city and spend far more time behind a computer than I'd like to.
I like people. I'm quite social, and like hanging out, or doing things together. I prefer to do things in places where conversation is possible - I'd rather go to a bar than a club.
I like being outside - I hike quite a bit, and I have four bicycles (and have to be careful not to get any more). I built one of them pretty much from parts, including spoking the wheels. I won't talk about them unless you ask though, and I don't wear skinny jeans :-)
I know how to open a coconut with a machete, and have done so on several occasions. I own a machete which was given to me by a Colombian.
I'm almost blind on my right eye. This makes me terrible at judging distances, and I suck at all games which involve catching a ball. I refuse to play ping pong.
I grew up on a farm with a vineyard. We made our own wine and sold some of it too. What's left of that is that I like to try different wines, and drink too much :-)
I like good food, and I love to cook. I make great Italian food. I lived in Italy for many years, I guess that helps. I'm a sucker for blue cheese.
I like to read - thrillers, historic books, the classics. I have a couple of hundred books on my shelf, and I still read paper books. I don't like ebook readers because I'd have to be careful with them and remember to charge them.
I like to do manual work. I have an extensive set of tools. The most recent thing I built is a wooden bike rack I installed on my balcony (for the four bikes mentioned above). It was a bloody masterpiece of engineering. The asshole building managers made me take it down because it "infringes the rules".
I like maps. I have maps of most places I've ever been to. When I plan to go somewhere, I usually buy a map first, so I also have several maps of places I never actually went to. I navigate with a road atlas, not a GPS.
