I love reading philosophy books and playing and learning new music instruments. I enjoy watching soccer; I’m a big fan of Liverpool FC!
I am also interested in mathematics and wish I would be able to take more time to get more serious about learning it more. I do not have a pet but I’m starting to fall more and more in love with Welsh Pembroke Corgies.

I was one of the better table-tennis players in Austria back in the day. It was a lot of fun and it’s a sport I still enjoy playing a lot.
