About Me

CURRENT MISSION

learn surfing, spanish and guitar playing

ABOUT ME

Well, I'm one of those who still believe that we can change the world. I walk through life with open eyes, trying to live in the now and not to remain in past or future. My passion is music, travelling, love, the sea, cultures, nature, people who don't take themselves too seriously and Latin America. After 2 1/2 years of travelling, I'm about to settle in London and currently getting frustrated by flathunting..haha, oh well.

PHILOSOPHY

"Be the change you want to see in the world", Ghandi - that's how I go through life - treat people like you want to be treated!

"..the wisest is she who knows she does not know..", Sokrates!!

"The new myths, the stories that we teach our children that will endow them with the will to live epic lives, must be forged, lived and told by us.

Those who choose their destiny will be the heroes, the pioneers, the midwives and the mothers of the future."

- Alberto Villoldo

"Dance as if there's no tomorrow.."
