In my free time, I like to go to concerts, explore new places on this planet, relax in nature and read news about outer space or cats.
But I also enjoy being at home. So, a large amount of my free time I spend with exploring the latest technology advancements in the front-end web development world, in the company of my wife, who is an artist, and our four cats.
