A little about me:
I enjoy traveling and visiting new places with my wife and daughter and son, who are 9 and 6 respectively. My wife and I are total foodies and are always eager to experience new places and cuisines. I enjoy playing tennis, chess with my kids. The four of us are currently trying to find a family sport and have recently taken to pink pong (table tennis). I would like to challenge anyone who doesn’t think it’s a sport.
In my free time, I like to play tennis with my buddies, I love to shoot pictures, mostly portraits, although my two muses aged 9 and 6 are too busy running around to pause and pose.
