My Movember Moustache Madness

fullsizerenderHey there!

After 4 years on British soil my attempts at growing a moustache during movember have not been very satisfactory to say the least. This time I decided to do things the other way around.

Normally a month is not enough for my moustache to grow to a reasonable length so I grew it beforehand and I will shave it at the end of movember. In the mean time you will enjoy pictures of my everyday moustachy adventures. Please donate! A fiver each can really make the difference both for this campaign and for research!

Cancer is a serious matter but we can win the battle, seriously!

Who is The Shepherd?

My name is Alvin and I am an Italian born learner.

I am interested in a broad variety of topics.

I am currently working on a multi-perspective topic called Neuroeconomics. It involves studying human behaviour in uncertain situations from different points of view. Psychological, Economic and Neuroscientific.

I cannot live without music. It is impossible to give a comprehensive list of genres therefore I will point you to my tagcloud.

I read a lot, mostly scientific papers, but I don’t dislike a good novel once in a while.

I love movies. I have a discrete collection (~140 titles), but I am always looking for new – or old – pearls to add.

I enjoy football, a lot. The company, the competition, learning tricks, using tricks, the passion, the commitment, the hits taken, the hits given, the victories, the defeats.

I had many teachers in my life. Some were in school, in university. Others were somewhere else, along my path. Some are still there and some are not anymore. Some are yet to be met. To all of them I say thank you.
