I love playing basketball and ice hockey, as well as watching them. I also enjoy jogging and the occasional hike in the mountains.

When indoors and time allows, I enjoy reading, particularly philosophy and science-of-mind literature. I also like cooking and experiment with new recipes as often as possible.

As far as technology goes, outside of web development I'm interested in cybersecurity and computer networking.
