Beyond technology and creation, I like motorcycles, travelling and camping. I spent a year and a half of my life travelling in south-east Asia and Australia by motorcycles. Probably the best time of my life...
I also like community volunteering, so I created Taykey for the community (TFTC) at my current workplace, where we teach youth at risk web development, and take parts in many other projects off-work.
