- I cook like an Egyptian grandmother
- I could drive a car for 13 hours straight
- On average, I spend more on animal food than human food
- Outside of work I am scuba diving in the Red Sea, trying to play Bach’s music on the classical guitar, treating and rescuing street dogs, battling zombies on my Xbox
