On my spare time, I love to see and experience new things; hence traveling and eating are one of my favorite things to do. I like abstract art (love Mark Rothko's works), classical music, interior design, architecture, arts and crafts, snowboarding and tennis. My latest hobby is woodworking/furniture-making. I have so far built a night table and 3/4 completed chair, and can't wait to add more to my collection. I tune to KCRW, KPCC, KMozart and watch HGTV, PBS, Travel Channel, Fuel TV, Damages, Project Runway, etc. I read painfully slowly, so I try to read only the award winning or highly recommended books. I enjoy movies of all genre, except for horror.
