About Me

CURRENT MISSION
improve my italian and tango dancing

ABOUT ME

I want to make a difference. I care about people and how we live together. I laugh alot (and cry sometimes). I generally don't do things by halves.
I'm an outdoors enthusiast - rock climbing, telemark skiing, mountaineering etc. and love to spend time in the wilderness - with others or by myself.
Love to dance - especially Salsa and Bachata and Tango. I work as a doctor (Anaesthetist), but currently not working much as living in Italy is not conducive to working!
I'm also pretty relaxed and like to hang out with friends, listen to music, see theatre and see how other people live.

PHILOSOPHY

Be real
