Himself like paints pictures by a real master, whether it's a view of the countryside or the expression of the moment that just attracts him. On the way to work he is playing in the car his favourite music, the energy he takes mainly from hard rock and heavy metal. In the evening with a glass of champagne he is happy to listen jazz.
