Apart from being a CMS manager and web consultant, I enjoy being outdoors. I love going for long walks and gentle hikes, as well as swimming in the lake.

When indoors, I love reading novels, watching sci-fi and fantasy genre movies and television shows, as well as Danish and Korean dramas. I love cooking and spend a good amount of my free time exploring the latest technology advancements in the web development world.
