About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Life is a dream that must be lived, so, LIVE.

ABOUT ME

I want to keep having meaningful connections with people from all countries, cultures, experiences, and walks of life. I never want to settle. Some people say "Why" I say, "Why not?"

PHILOSOPHY

I believe in happy endings, travel, laughter, dreaming, and love.
Simplicity is beautiful. I work for the smile return, not the financial return. I smile always.
