Interests

My primary interest is learning cool stuff! I just love to learn and grow, and I love to share what I have learned! This includes; intelligent physical practise including Martial Arts, Circular Srength Training and Tactical Fitness (TacFit), meditation, optimal nutrition, reading both fiction and non-fiction (primarily Science and Philosophy), Biomimicry, watching movies, traveling and exploring the world, spending time in 'natural' environments such as forests, mountains, the seaside etc. and last but certainly not least, spending time with my amazing wife, son, family and friends!
