I love to read. It makes me happy, gives me energy, calms me down and provides inspiration. I try to alternate between reading fiction and non-fiction.
When I’m not reading I might be working. I’m the COO of an IT consultancy company. I enjoy running, playing tennis or climbing rocks. Recently I started to learn to play the piano, which so far I’m enjoying too.

I blog because I love to write, and I write about the books that I read and how they inspire me.

For those interested: Kalliope is the muse of eloquence and epic poetry.

Here rise to life again, dead poetry!
Let it, O holy Muses, for I am yours,
And here Kalliope, strike a higher key,
Accompanying my song with that sweet air
which made the wretched Magpies feel a blow
that turned all hope of pardon to despair

– Dante Alighieri in Divine Comedy
