Outside my professional sphere, I am passionate about sports, particularly tennis, and enjoy spending quality time in nature through activities such as hiking, fly-fishing, and birding. Committed to community service, I volunteer as a board member for the local sports association, serve as a nature guide for school children, and contribute as a soccer referee.
