Apart from working as a Web Developer and teaching Web Design, I also train my mind-body system in many ways.
I am not a typical nerd who lives his life on the laptop eating junk food. I train myself in Calisthenics and Street Workout, to develop a strong musculuar foundation (not muscular hypertrophy, but definition and real strength).
I also train myself in the Chinese Internal Martial Arts, a particular type of Qi Gong I learned from a skilled master which I practice on my own. This allows me to clear my mind and emotions, be still and clear, and be proactive in the topics of my life.
I have also been studyng Quantum Physics, which I love so much. Einstein, Plato, Socrates and Bruce Lee are some of my favourite characters.
