Apart from being a programmer, I love swimming but surprisingly I don't do it as often. I also love watching movies and watching soccer.

When forced indoors, I follow a number of sci-fi and fantasy genre movies and television shows, I am an aspiring chef, and I spend a large amount of my free time exploring the latest technology advancements in the software development.
