Outside of Academia

Outside of academia I am a music geek. I play trumpet, guitar and I sing on an amateurish level. I am a firm believer in moveable-do as a system of music theory! It is an unlikely hobby coming from the flattest country in Europe, but I enjoy climbing and bouldering. I also enjoy playing board/video games.
