Not really one for small talk, I like getting right into the heart of the matter. Let's get deep, talk about it, explore ideas and concepts. No subject is off topic or uninteresting.
I am a bit of a 'maker', to use current pop culture language. With that comes a passion for understanding how the world works, imagining how it could be better and sometimes making those visions reality.
Raising a wonderful boy of school age. Preparing him for the world.
Enjoying or making the best of whatever comes my way.
Listening and understanding.. And (hopefully maybe!) sometimes, giving some good advice.
Enjoying the company of my friends and current moment.
In the last 5 years or so, I've mostly been reading books on psychology, philosophy, mathematics, economics, history and a variety of more text-book subjects. More specifically Existentialism, Positive Psychology, Buddhism, Chaos Theory, History of Comedy, Argumentation. Books such as: Freakonomics, History of Nearly Everything.
As for music I tend to like feel good, make laugh or smile type songs. Upbeat electronica, jazz, funk, hiphop.
I love food! I'm actually a pretty decent cook even. ;)
I totally geek on coffee. I have a full espresso bar at home, can make an americano, espresso, latte, cappuccino, or whatever you prefer! ;)
The relationships in my life are important, be they family or friend.
(When writing this...) I had just had dinner last night with friends that I've worked with for 12 years now. Despite us all having moved between various continents and countries we all find a way to stick together.
