About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Exploring the world and being influenced by the creative people I meet along the way

ABOUT ME

I have quit a busy job during the working days but after work I balance my time as much as possible for my friends and family and the sports I like. I have opinions about everything but stay open minded through a deep and tested regime of "not taking myself seriously" but being serious about what I'm doing. I try to have as much as fun as I can have!

PHILOSOPHY

Try to live the max. You are responsible for your own acts! Make friends
