Interests

“I am a very social and engaging individual with passion for sports, travelling, camping and outdoor activities. 

Since childhood I’ve been practising sports from swimming to different martial arts. Karate, judo, taichi chuan and swimming were my first passions. Most recently I tried kung fu, arching and shooting and I loved them all not just for the sport themselves but also for what you can learn from them which is discipline and focus. This skills is something I have taken not only to my way of being but also into my professional life.

Last but not least I love spending time with family and friends wherever and whenever I can. This includes family pets by the way!”
