About Me

CURRENT MISSION

be happy

ABOUT ME

All about me? That would be too long. How about what kind of I am? I am the kind of person who is up for anything, energetic, open-minded, friendly, and optimistic. I enjoy: meeting new people and listening to their stories, discussing about new things or creating ideas, setting onto crazy adventures, seeing new things, going to into the unknown, good music, good books, any kind of sport, learning about anything (culture, cooking, religion, etc.), and helping to make this world a better place.

PHILOSOPHY

I guess the point to life is to be happy, have fun, hurt as little people as possible doing so, and help as many people along the way fulfill that very same thing.

I believe in mostly Buddhist philosophy; peace and love.

None so far, but I assure you I will have a horde of experiences coming up in 2014! That's when I go for my backpacking world tour!

Music, Movies, and Books

I like all kinds of movies, anything but horror.
Any music sounds good to me, so long as it sounds good to me, but if I had to pick it'd be electronic music (trance, house, electro, etc.) I love electronic music festivals or just when any good DJ comes into town.

My favorite authors are Haruki Murakami and Paulo Choelo.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I would rather discuss it in person, but I think traveling two weeks in Tibet with monks would be one of the most amazing things I've done.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to be a teacher and forever a learner.
