About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live, learn, laugh, love - travel, taste, tickle, tangle...

ABOUT ME

I'm pretty easy-going, straightforward, active, friendly, chill except for my enthusiastic moments, very very curious, quirky at times... I love nature - clouds, trees, waterscapes, animals etc. - as well as the urban life (a balance). Creative & philosophically practical :) A weakness for felines of all sorts, and many kinds of beauty. I'm told I have an atypical sense of humor :)

I'm keen about preserving as natural an environment as is possible... I think working *with* nature is much more sensible than working *on* nature... Simply put, nature has millions of years of advance on us... What's the point of competing!?

Studied in biophysics, computer science, journalism and saving the world (check it out - http://bth.se/msls) :)

PHILOSOPHY

Karma is like a boomerang
Quality, not quantity
So met hin gsar eno tlik eth eyse emt obe
Start something. Then have fun experimenting...

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm considered by my friends to be a mix : wants to co-create a better world, creative, loves sport, enjoying conversations, sociable, seeking fairness... But I also like to slip away from all the agitation, and go to quiet, natural places to recharge...

I like to learn about people's experiences, travels and culture. See what they like, taste what they eat, hear about what they think! :-)
