I live in Barcelona with Jedidjah and our feline friends, portrayed below. I play the viola in a community orchestra. I love reading (lately mostly non-fiction), live music, good coffee, and urban bicycle rides. I also go to swimming lessons. I speak Catalan and Spanish natively, English as a second language, and began learning Dutch but gave up. My newest hobby is gardening; I look after a varied array of plants, including a fair number of cacti and succulents.

My two cats, Spinoza and Tubman.
