I listen to many kind of music but I specially like Grunge, Jazz and many of the works of Tchaikovsky.
I also love Photography, it's one of my many hobbies. I take special interest in the works of Spencer Tunick and Philippe Halsman but I don't think there is a photography style that influences my work. It is a trade that I'm still learning
On other Visual Arts, I like painting and drawing. The later used to be a hobbie when I was in High School but I haven't grab a pencil since. Too bad, I guess.
Regarding painting. I really love Impressionism, whatever it's an oil painting or Toulouse Ads beside I kind of admire the way they lived in Paris during this period.
Regarding architecture I love Art Deco and the streamlined architecture, mostly because of the context they describe. I forgot to mention that I'm also a History Geek
I try to do as many outdoors activities as I can: trekking, camping, Airsoft, you named, I'll try it at least once I guess it's to counterbalance my working life. I work behind a computer in a cube 40+ hours a week and I'm not complaing, I used to do this for free
I'm sort of a book worm + Computer Nerd / Hacker + Outsdoor person, all wrapped up in a Family Guy package
