About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learning to play a great trance & techno club mix.

ABOUT ME

I am perfect mix of both of my parents:

My father is a quite conservative accountant who worked for the same power company for over 25 years and moved from one suburb to another within his hometown.

My mom is an artist and former arts teacher born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She loves to travel, talks a lot and struggles with the ideas of capitalism.

PHILOSOPHY

The only limit we have: (human) Nature.

The most important process during history is the process of people getting united.

Make your dreams your goals.
