About Me

CURRENT MISSION: About to begin a special sculpture/ art project in Northern Finland, (lapland), From there a tour of Eastern Europe, Balkans, and Russia, hoping to do workshops for art, collaborative projects/ literature sharing/ and just any kind of weird life adventure, and volunteering or helping on some farms/ restaurants anything . No solid plans. write me if you have a venue, interest, or passion for any of these things
This dates are August 2017 ongoing. Putting it out there for the universe to here. ( also a side mission is trying to reclaim romanian citizen ship from my grandfathers passport)

I believe in the following
"those who know of goodness share it."

Each travel forgets itself in the current one. And thus we are cursed to keep moving and changing , in this seeking to grasp both the present , past and future .
I am usually searching the world for new experience and poetry ...

an honest, hearty, soulful, and considerate guy,
friendly and easygoing, down to earth, clean, solid cook. up for adventure and an alternative perspective on anything, respectful and thankful for people and appreciative of other cultures and places and manners and methods.

" not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted"
