About Me


Go before it's too late. Love it or leave it


Traveller. Explorer. Wannabe do-gooder ;). I'm a cheerful dreamer who loves to get to know new people, learn and share.

I started in economics, and than desided to go for my life long dreams. Nowadays I'm studying Industrial Design and lovin' it.


Live in such a way that when the time comes I'll be a happy grandma in my rocking chair.

"The man who makes no mistakes does not usually make anything"
-Theodore Roosevelt

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Playing soccer with 80 years old 150 cm tall Peruvian grandma, accidentally ending up in the middle of the local parties with no other tourists in sight, living in a tent in Austrialia for 2.5 months and dining every night at the sunset. Small random things often make the best memories.
