    Interests

    Apart from being a Graphic Designer and learning the ropes of the web, I enjoy most of my time being outdoors. In the winter, I retreat indoors. During the sunny months here in Florida, I enjoy mountain biking and hope to be scuba diving in the near future.

    When forced indoors, I follow a number of Anime, sci-fi and fantasy genre series', I am an aspiring chef, wishful body builder and a definitive Space nerd.
