What do you like to do outside of work?

In addition to spending time with my family and friends, I love playing and coaching soccer. I particularly enjoy watching kids became skilled players after working with them in one-to-one training sessions, which I spend about 12 hours a week in doing. I also enjoy reading and listing to music.
