ABOUT ME

I love traveling, languages, mathematics, dancing,and foreign culture. I love people who can teach me something new and who have different opinions than the mainstream. More than anything I want to meet some strikingly individual, good-hearted people who know how to have fun and relax.

PHILOSOPHY

Almost nothing we do is necessary, but still we do it. We are driven by our life experiences, and they make up a great part of who we are.
El amor definido deja de serlo. -Unamuno (Love defined ceases to be.)
A closed mind learns nothing new, and that's a sad, sad thing.
