What are you interested in outside of work?

I am a Formula 1 fanatic, and into pretty much anything that involves cars. I try to get my car out on the track whenever I can, and then spend way too much time under the hood, often covered in grease and oil.

If you were an inanimate object, what would you be and why?

Wrench - can't really build anything without a good wrench.
