About spending his free time he said: “I’m an artist with sport adventure soul. If jang is my art creativity, sport activity is my jing. The biggest pieces of my jing mosaic are windsurfing & surfing, skiing, mountain biking, hiking, volleyball, running… so non motor sports. I’m also traveling around the world as a wind and wave hunter, with all my senses on, in route I’m meeting different cultures and discovering nature… of course, always with one eye through camera. As I mentioned at the beginning I’m a freelancer, so I’m free bird and the whole World is my cage.”
