About Me

CURRENT MISSION

explore the world:)

ABOUT ME

It's difficult to talk about oneself, but in short, i'm very much into art and culture, my ideal way of spending free time includes traveling, learing about other cultures and histories, meeting international people, visiting all sorts of cultural events, exploring new places, roaming on off the beaten tracks, going to jazz concerts, going to art cinema/cinematheque, reading good literature, walking in the nature/mountains...I consider myself as as a quite international person, and i like to make international friends.

PHILOSOPHY

''Music is deeper than philosophy'' Beethoven
