The B-Side...

“Away from the office I like being with my dog ​​Berlin, with my family and friends. You will also find me at the gym. I like to travel (and, above all, to go back to Berlin, where anything is possible), the sun, to listen to music and reading. I don't like to cook but I like to eat well, and I don’t like gardening (which can be confirmed by the messy vegetation that grows, occasionally, in my patio, where I catch all the rays of light and a few more). I like people who are relaxed and at ease with life. I like slow living, but I am always running around, I don’t like to wait for filter coffee, french press and the like."
