About Me


Keep learning stuff


I'm a easy going person but who likes to do many things. I'm very concern about where the world is going and I got a very critic view on the way the majority of the population is living. I'm still open to all kind of people and like good community living. I like to film and edit and if you want to have a look on what I do or get a idea of what Montréal look like you can check it out here:!series/galleryPage


Work less, spend less, enjoy life and having time to learn stuff.
