About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Make a difference - be happy and make people around me happy - love the Earth with its peoples, animals and plants

ABOUT ME

I'm a laid-back person, I love languages, I also like working and studying, traveling whenever possible. I like to meet new people. I love sports (#1 surfing, #2 swimming, #3 sailing ), but I do hate soccer, I'm an active kinda person - I love exercising, going to the gym.
I also like: movies, books, computers, satellite TV, the Internet
I prefer healthy food (I don't eat red meat and fast-food )but I do love beer/wine, having drinks with friends, going out, hanging out with friends...
Basically, I like it all, but as a good Libra I "try" to keep my life in a good balance

PHILOSOPHY

What I currently believe in now is that - the more I learn, the less I know... There's always something new to be learned or explored, so go for it!
