Interests: Too many to list... My preference with design and art is more for the concrete as opposed to abstract, even when dealing with abstract, the piece has to show some element of creativity, novelty, talent within it's design. General interests. -Motorcycles, speed, adrenaline, engineering challenges, color, pencil sketching, autoparts, photography, too many to list. -Movies...too many to list... -Music: Drum and bass, SEBA, anything with a good beat.
