Stuff I Do For Fun
There are many things I enjoy. Most of them revolve around exploring new cultures. I travel as much as I can, whenever I can.
When I was in my 20’s I used to travel alone. In fact, I did a 10 months backpacking trip in Central and South America when I was 22. That is how I learned Spanish, my then fourth tongue.
Reading and writing has always been my go-to activity for when I needed to organize my thoughts or get a new perspective on things.
Recently I have began illustrating. Drawing was my favorite pastime as a child an illustration is the mature version of that hobby
Running is my new skill. If you run you’ll understand why I call it a skill. In 2015 I ran my first Half Marathon and I hope to run many more.
The most time consuming part of my life is my joyful daughter Nina, born in 2016. She makes me better in every single way, especially when it comes to time management.
