I (email hidden) who came to this country in 1984 to continue my studies. In 1991 I joined Xerox and have been working in R&D ever since. My main hobbies are skiing and boarding in the winter time and hang gliding and biking in the summer. I also love hiking in the Finger Lakes area and visiting vineries for a little tasting. The week of the Rochester International Jazz Festival is a great time to take off work, enjoy the wonderful music, and try to see as many bands as possible.
My favorite engineer joke: how do you know you met an extravert engineer? He looks at YOUR shoes!
I speak English and German fluently, enjoy practicing my French and Spanish, and with hands and feet may be able to communicate in Italian. Needless to say I enjoy hosting people from all corners of the world.
