Respect for nature

“Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread. A civilization which destroys what little remains of the wild, the spare, the original, is cutting itself off from its origins and betraying the principle of civilization itself.” ~ Edward Abbey

I have been a rock climber as long as I have been an acoustician. My hobby complements my work well. When I’m not at work, I am spending time with my family and friends outdoors.
