About Me

CURRENT MISSION
“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.” (Buddha)

P.S. Why do we always search for soulmates or friends? Is life possible without soulmates too? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

ABOUT ME
Well, to be honest, I’ve been a Raw Vegan Fruitarian for the last 5 years (´・_・`)

Fruitarianism is not a diet, but a way of life; it's not about losing weight or detoxing — it's a lifestyle. My decision to go fruitarian reflects a philosophical outlook that embraces harmony with nature and respect for life.

Besides , I’m a Drama Teacher and a Filmmaker (*•̀ᴗ•́*)و ̑̑
I believe everyone is an artist, and everyone has the potential to create art in their work if they choose to. We don’t actually have to produce artwork to be an artist. Art is a way of living. Creativity is a way of expressing our unique nature in everything we do. This means seeing beyond our eyes as we look for and discover the essence of everything that we encounter. Art therefore tends to open our minds and our hearts and shows us what could be possible in our world.

PHILOSOPHY
There are two main ways of looking at the world: things happen either ‘to me’ or ‘by me’’. One of the most profound realizations you can come to in life is the idea that you are a creator. Truly understanding and living this will have a massively positive impact on your life, from your relationships to your career to your happiness.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hitchhiked through Trans-Siberian Highway to the Baikal Lake in Buryatia.

Hitchhiked through Ukraine, Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan and Iran to the Omar Khayyam Garden.

Lived in Siberia for 3 years and in China for 5 years.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love talking to people and hearing their stories. Everyone's got their own story to tell, and when you sit down with someone and really talk to them, you can learn so much.

What is your favourite topic for a long conversation and why?

Here’s my top 5 list:

1) What are your biggest goals for your life? What progress have you made in attaining them?

2) Who are you really? Who is behind the mask that you show to the rest of the world?

3) Looking at the last 5 years, how did you spend your life, and what would you change if you were given the opportunity to?

4) What’s something terrifying that we’ve all come to accept as a fact of life?

5) What’s one thing you would change in our world today?
