I am new to vintage cars, so the obsession is just taking root. Lifetime of hang gliding. Anything related to dogs. Playing acoustic guitar.

House renovation, gardening, archeology, reading, cooking, cycling, running, swimming, sightseeing, history, photography, antiques, buying and selling. I love to dance, too, but do not do so much of it anymore. Live music and theatre. I also enjoy my full-time job and socializing with friends. I love to do things with my wife and children. I probably forgot a few things here and there. I have been trying to learn Chinese. If I could add anything, it would be learning French as my daughter lives there and my son-in-law is French.
