Q. What do you for a good time when you’re not working?
A. I usually spend time with my family: watching TV series, playing with my two daughters and travelling to new places. I love running, and I’m aiming to run a full marathon someday. I enjoy photography as a hobby – particularly nature, travel, HDR and night photography. But the most important photos for me are those capturing good memories of my family.
