I like cinema
music and reading. My favorite sports are swimming (I like to swim at least 1.000 meters)
jogging (run about 6Km in 40 minutes)
cycling and two persons “open kayak” with my family and friends. Snorkeling is a passion
but recently I discovered the simplicity and beauty of scuba diving. Friends gathering (we are a group of more than 20 persons) is always delightful and enriching. I like to travel and get to know new cultures
colors and flavors.
