HOBBIES & INTERESTS
I love being creative, therefore it is no surprise that one of my passions is art. In my free time, one can often find me in my studio drawing, painting, and sculpting.
When I feel the need to clear my head and refocus I seek out the tranquility of nature. Surrounded by nature and breathtaking landscapes the world seems to come to a standstill and I can enjoy the simple pleasures in life such as feeling the warm glow of the sun on my skin, the fresh breeze softly blowing through my hair, or the calming sound of the babbling brook and birds chirping. To me, hiking is a refreshing escape from city life that gives me a feeling of freedom.
Golf is a versatile and complex game of sport. Because I like mental stimulation I appreciate the strategic golf course design and enjoy the risk/reward decision I am required to make on every hole. An additional pleasure is that there is always more to learn and ways to improve my swing, strategy, and approach. Playing golf requires dedication, accuracy and strategic thinking as well as the ability to function well under pressure. In my opinion, golf is not necessarily a physical but rather a mental sport. If I am distracted and lose focus I have already lost even before my first swing. This makes golf very interesting and fun as there is always a different challenge and outcome.
Undeniably I am also very passionate about good food and cooking. Experiencing how the different textures, tastes, and spices of ingredients can create a symphony of harmonious flavors is exciting. I am fascinated by the fact that pairing even the most unlikely flavors together sometimes creates a sensational new taste experience. It is a tribute to the fact that, as in life, diversity and taking risks can result in something worthwhile. Improvisation and creativity are important ingredients in the kitchen.
I feel that there is nothing quite like sitting around with friends having great conversations and sharing a delicious meal. Good food can bring family and friends together in a way that is truly special and creates lasting memories.
Over all I just like to have fun and enjoy life. I love to laugh and therefore try to surround my self with great people who have a positive attitude and are up for an adventure.
