About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To be with positive nurturing people

ABOUT ME

I am a 39 year old male born in Denmark but spent my entire childhood, adolescent and adult years living in many different countries. I don't have any emotional ties to any particular culture or nation and consider myself just a plain earthling. I have spent most of my life in music; performance, composing and education but I am also interested in ecology, spirituality and holistic health.

PHILOSOPHY

Philosophical keywords: Exchange, Honesty, Free of negativity, Open, Alert. Focusing on earth things and not world things. Not getting carried away with stress and negativity. Staying fresh and not stagnant.
