Photographer; guitarrista (jazz,soul)

As Richard Feynman, a great hero of mine said:

“Fall in love with some activity, and do it! Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn't matter. Explore the world. Nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough. Work as hard and as much as you want to on the things you like to do the best. Don't think about what you want to be, but what you want to do. "

PHILOSOPHY

Jazz / Scientist, Rationalist, Optimist, skipping lunch for double-dutch, you know, having fun it don't take much.
