Most memorable vacation

One week in Barcelona, Spain in October 2010 with my wife Jennifer. We stayed in a beautiful boutique hotel in a converted mansion. Wandering through the medieval streets of the Barrio Gotico, every day was a new adventure with a different path and amazing architecture. Finding a perfect tapas bar on one of those adventures. Touring Camp Nou, the home Stadium of FC Barcelona with its museum with the history of the club and its importance in the Catalan culture was an incredible not to be missed experience.

Favorite music

Alternative rock

Personal accomplishment/ most proud of?
