What quality of yours makes you best suited for what you do?

The inability to give up.  I think for every problem there is at least one solution.  It could take some time to figure it out, but at the end there should be a way to solve it.

 

What is your favorite spot in San Diego?

My favorite spots are all the museums in Balboa Park. They are a fountain of knowledge for the thirsty minds.

 

What book are you currently reading?

The Art of War by Sun Tzu and Modern English, Exercises for Non-native Speakers. I am reading the first one as I believe that life is a constant war against yourself, against the odds, and being able to strategically gain an advantage which can lead to positive self-development.  The second one I am reading is because, as a non-native speaker, I am trying to polish my communication skills.  I think being able to transmit the messages properly is one of the most important things in life.

 

I am happiest when:

I am learning.  Learning is an addiction to me.  There is nothing that brings more joy than learning something new.  I am that kind of person that would settle in a library and probably read all the books just for fun.

 

What is the best gift you have ever received?

My wife and my daughter.  They are the reason why I want to be a better person every day.
