The B-Side...

"I'm inquisitive and need my work for personal fulfillment. But I cannot live without my kids, my friends and my gym.

Dinner with friends, a good wine, a good conversation and lots of laughs, are the best things in life.

Besides that, I only need the sea, the sun on my preferred boardwalk and never to lose the ability to say gibberish, what would be of the world without laughter!?"
