About Me


I am a wannabe environmentalist. I don't fly very often, try to avoid buying stuff I don't need and don`t have a car. Fortunately, I couldn't actually afford any of this stuff anyway, so my resolve hasn't really been tested.
I'm also a vegetarian, which is annoying, because I love meat.


I'm into great movies, awesome music, classic literature, politics, history, running, rugby, hiking... well, lots of things.
