What's your life goal?

Make the world a peaceful and happy place, or at least contribute as much as I can towards that direction. I enjoy the process of creation of products that make people's lives easier or more enjoyable. I aim to pursue my career while always allowing myself to do that, as my own boss or within a company.

What's your favorite music, book, movie, game, sport team, ...?

I'm generally not into fiction, so the movies/books I enjoy watching/reading are mostly documentaries and practical or business books. I'm yet to find a favorite, but I'll make sure to tell you if I do ;) I enjoy listening to a vast variety of music genres, from pop to rai, bollywood, classical, instrumental, country, dance, dubstep, electro, swing, opera, jazz, reggae, dancehall, classic rock, from the 60s, 80s, 70s, and many more! I like casual games, mostly on mobile. I'm not a big fan of board games. Though I love sport, I don't really like watching other people practicing and don't usually stand up for a side or another, in sports and other kind of entertainments. You can find the movies and animes I watched, music I listen to, games I play, and more in [this list of links](/social/?tags=Entertainment).
