Interests

Apart from being a designer, I am also a dedicated blood donor with 20+ donations to this date. I enjoy most of my time being outdoors. In the winter, when it is not too cold, I take long power walks while listening to the Old School Rap or Electronic music, and sometimes to Hans Zimmer masterpieces (seriously, the man is a genius). During the warmer months here in Connecticut, I enjoy going fishing with my kids, swimming, and playing airsoft.

When forced indoors, I follow a number of sci-fi, fantasy and history genre movies and television shows. I especially enjoy learning about science and history: art, political, military. Professionally, I like exploring the latest technology advancements in the front-end web development and digital signage worlds.
