I tend to describe myself as contradictory. Sure of myself yet shy. Knowledgeable, cynical and sharp yet often naive, optimistic and clueless. Open minded, liberal and a feminist but still have some old-world codes of honor. A modern urbanist and technologist that still uses a pen and paper and wants to hike around the world.
I'm a connoisseur of good conversations, good food, well written books and interesting people. Thinking about everything, all the time, in the same time. Collecting random pieces of trivia.
I can find everything to be terribly, dreadfully funny. My humor can be cynical or up-beat, dark or quirky, tactless, blunt, geeky, bawdy, weird or even - heaven forbid - it can include puns. Don't take me seriously, I am never serious, except when I am.
For my hobbies, I write, read, cook, play all sort of games, ride bicycles, dive, travel, join debate teams, host people from couch-surfing and consider how I can take over the world. It's not going that well, sadly. I need more minions. Please apply at the office if you are so inclined.
