Besides Ice Hockey

I have always had a passion for cars. I am not sure why, but I guess it was a natural thing. At the age of 16, I got a moped car and was extremely happy driving it around the city. Even though the speed on that car was limited to only 50km/h, I still enjoyed the feeling of driving. Once I turned 18 and got my driver’s license, I was lucky enough to get myself a really nice and elegant BMW grand coupe here in Florida.  It was like a dream come true for me at that time. A couple of years later, I got my eyes on Nissan GTR. Thanks to my brother, I learned that this car was one of the most powerful cars on the planet and according to him, it was the “real deal” compared to other sports vehicles in the same class. It took me only one test drive to fall in love with this beast. These days, I drive Range Rover and BMW M8 which is now my favorite car.

In my free time, I also like to play video games. This has been my hobby since I got my first console back in 2005. I play various games such as, GTA, Call of Duty, FIFA, NHL etc. What I enjoy the most is to play with my friends online. We arrange various team plays and communicate via microphone. During the 2016 World Cup in Canada I joined up with Patrik Laine  to play NHL 17 online agains our friends in Finland. It was time well spent, even though we had pretty strict schedule.

I do love the game of basketball and my favorite team is obviously the Miami Heat. When I have free time I always try to go and see their games. I have met some of the players couple of times including the legend Dwayne Wade!

Finally, I like to eat. Who doesn’t, right? I enjoy my mom’s cooking a lot and when she is not around, I like to get a steak or some buffalo wings when in Finland. Recently, I fell in love with Japanese Ramen Noodles. My brother has lived in Asia for many years and he was the first one to introduce me to this dish. For now, that is all what I have time to do. Maybe as the time goes by I will have some time for new hobbies too.
