Very simple, be respectful of our little blue planet and those who live on it
I am a passionate and intense man always trying to keep an enthusiastic and easygoing attitude. I enjoy people and exchanging on multiple topics, especially those concerning society and culture. Some years ago I have quit my long-term career in a big corporation to explore the world and life an alternative existence. It took me so long to jump and today I realize that our fears are our worst enemies. I try to rediscover myself each day and never believe that I hold the truth hoping to never find it. I am a vegetarian, anti-consumerist, practicing meditation daily and yoga when possible.
The rest it you to find out by knowing me.
I believe we have a amazing chance to be in this world, at this time and we have to take great care of our planet and the people that are surroundings us.
This is the ultimate gift and we have to share and cherish it with passion.

CS is a very profound collective allowing to meet unique individual and transforming our vision. I have encountered amazing people who changed the trajectory of my existence.

Teach, Learn, Share
I have learned in my short existence to always put yourself in the shoes of others so you will avoid conflict and misunderstanding.
I have learned to enjoy those small moments.
I have learned in a very difficult way that money does not bring happiness and sometimes will lead you in the wrong path.
I also learned to always put things back where they belong to make your live easier.
I try to share goodness and always will.
