“You can do anything you set your mind to.”
- Benjamin Franklin



I love solving riddles and problems and building stuff from scratch. My strong suit is that I don't give up without a fight. When trying to find the solution to a problem, I will not quit until I find at least one. The satisfaction I get from solving a problem can really make my day.



Who doesn't, really?



I can listen to music all day. I have a varied taste of music and I listen to it at work, on the train..., basically everywhere
