A Little Bit More About Me - Personal interests
In general, I am drawn to the activities which inspire me to be inventive and creative. Resultantly I have lots of hobbies, which I elaborate below. LetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s start with the hobby of exploring the world and recording it with a camera. Multicultural environment in which I grew up inspired me to explore the world and to meet with different cultures and ways of life. In addition to travelling and sightseeing the well-known routes, I also love to hike around the less-known places and to document my adventures with a DSLR camera. Apart from understanding the world better, I believe that a multicultural perspective allows me to interact better with the increasingly diverse students and faculty members. This hobby is followed by digital design. It is worth noting that this website was adapted by me from scratch. The same holds for the presentations accompanying MIS Quarterly Executive journals. I also enjoy designing and printing 3D objects. During my summers, I like to replicate dozens of sculptures from the Getty Villa Collection for my personal collection. I am also very interested in collecting watches, LEGOs, cars and antiques. Specifically, collecting pieces of haute horlogerie ranks very high among my interests. My favorite complications are moon phases, mechanical chronographs, tourbillions and minute repeaters. In addition to the horology hobby, I recently got interested in the automotive engineering as well. Unfortunately, I am still not any good at it. One summer I had spent 6 hours replacing a regular aux glove box cable with gold plated one on one of my cars. Thus, whenever my cars need a regular service I drive it to the authorized mechanic... For now! And finally, I am happy to report that my pets (two cats and a dog) also rank highly among my personal interests.
