About Me


To see the world and understand its creatures


I love to travel and I can't get enough! I am a seasoned traveler. I bring a musical instrument with me everywhere I go. I love to dance, do massage, cook. I love showing people around my hometown too.
I love Burning Man, I am into Kink, I can tell a story, and a joke. I enjoy sharing experiences with people of the world. A person who is not well traveled is not well educated!


Only in this world for a short time. By his self a man is useless. Self expression is only self indulgence if one has nothing to express. Only by truely living will one be able to face death. Only one who is willing to die is ready to live. Only one who is awake has free will.
