A great fan of long bicycle trips, computer games and music, covering everything from classic rock, hip-hop or jazz to soundtracks and electronics. He plays the electric guitar, but the multitude of other passions and the lack of time made him abandon a dream of founding his own band and becoming a rockstar. However, he loves listening to artists who have managed to do so.
