Interests

Not everything is programming and, thus, this page is about what I like... besides programming.

Film

I like cinema. I've watched and enjoyed many movies of every genre and different time periods. I don't go out of my way to watch old movies (and this is why I don't consider myself a "cinephile") and prefer contemporary stuff, but I do watch oldies every now and then.

I like movies so much I have a fairly active imdb profile, check it out if you want to see what movies I've watched, reviews, etc.

Music

I like music and I listen to many genres, though I generally prefer contemporary commercial music: mostly rock and some pop. I also enjoy jazz and classical from time to time.

Given that I'm usually most interested in the vocals, I tend to prefer properly trained singers. This is why I listen to a lot of showtunes or opera, and not that many instrumentals.

Literature

I used to read a lot of fiction, before I got my first computer. I'm trying to pick the habit back up and I'm reading and planning to read several classics and contemporary novels.

Checklist

  • I'm not much of a traveler, but I wouldn't say no to visiting London, Berlin, New York, Moscow and Sidney.
  • I want to (re)learn basic vocal technique and learn basic movement.
  • I might write a fantasy story some day.
