Favourite technologies: 

Drupal, Symfony, PHP, jquery, cordova, MySQL, MongoDB, node.js, objective c, java are part of my daily life right now. In my past I've worked fairly extensively with C and C++ projects. I've also been developing on a linux box since kernel 2.0.x, so yeah, linux is cool too :)

Favourite books:,, etc, and perhaps you may find a cheezy romance novel on my bedside table :)

When not at work, how do you spend your time: 

Thinking about the next "way too big project" I can get myself into, and any other completely unrelated things I can think of!
