During his 12 years as a sports reporter, not a day went by when he wasn’t advised to spend time on “something serious”. The fairy godmothers had him ear-marked for a soccer career, but, in keeping with his physical constitution, he studied chess and philosophy. At 17 he won a contest at a local television station for offering the most profound definition of life. He received a gym membership in exchange, which he never used. He’s a long-time fan of the bands Timpuri Noi, Pulp, and Barcelona.
