About Me

Under Construction

ABOUT ME

The world's been my back ground since an early age and has evolved into my community of sorts. And now Ive been living in different places in the world, integrating myself into different cultures and working using art and creativity to build communities.

I'm always adapting, scheming and following the current of life. I don't pretend to be in control of it but accept the turns and surprises it has delivered to me. Life's a grand journey, and when every reality is based on trivial decisions all you can do is set the course.

Well its not fair to judge myself but they have told me that I am easy going, imaginative, curious, and fun to be around. It could be a lot worse.

In my world it is laughs, experiences and conversation that turn life into a party. Filling my life with people with similar exuberance for life and openness has and will continue to bring me my finest moments.

Cities are a passion of mine, hence this city planning thing... through the promotion of art and public space my voyage is to set the city straight as a means for human development...that is, culture, understanding, harmony, and expression.
