We are a family of four, my wonderful wife and two sons. Our sons are grown up, elder son settled aboard and missed very much, very lucky to have the younger one with us, at least for a while, in between his graduation and masters. Very disciplined and methodical in life, I am a near perfectionist, if I do something, I have to do it properly. I love classical music and poetry and like to read something every night before going to sleep.
