About Me


enjoying my time in The Med, discovering new landscape in Tunis, Italia, South of France..Meet its people and culture

Currently in Grau du Roi, France

I am glad and impatient to leave again and again for new destinations, and sometimes coming back to some strategical places for its people.

A positive soul surfing the Time, selftough in the world ( it should be easyer to learn than to study ), polite when not in an other mood..

I fancy meet new people, take care of my pales...dancing all night long, and water sports.

Permanent traveler for a while, on earth, on seas, by air, sail, walks, dreams.
I dont have home cause I am working and living at sea and otherwise I am traveling and going from friends places, CSrs places to hostel, aiports benches to beaches : that s why I really appreciate when some of you understand that and open me their home and share this warm feeling.

I lived in London for a while, enjoyed and hated it, in Paris too but only hated it, and the parisiens even more, in Las Vegas, enjoyed and suffered it, in Valencia Spain, only enjoyed it, on yachts, only enjoyed it ( barely !!), In Rio de Janeiro...cidade maravillosa, muito bom! and now Göcek ( Turkey)

I love social life a lot( Gemini side), one to one relationship ( gemini as well), and relation with nobody else than me ( very gemini too).
I met great people in life ( I think so from them), but they are very few compared to the thousands of people I crossed, the hands I shaked, and were bloody assholes...hehhe. C'est la Vie, as we say in my native country. Most of you will have to ask me where I am from, but most important is who I am now. And in fact it only matters if you want to meet me, isn't it¿
It's ok for me if we do not speak to much about work for a while, even if I love to listen people describe their job ( when they like it). I have been working in the luxury industry since my young ages, but worked in camps and factory too, and maintain a good relation with the Ground. I sold perfumes, clothes, worked in casinos, for the greatest jeweller of London, sold houses in Spain ( I love this country, the people, the language), cooked, sailed the seas. Quite a endless list, and shure a lot more jobs to come in my life.


One day you will die, It s not big deal if you have been living well.

HI-FI Music from any country -
Champagne...but any sparkling wine too, when dry extra dry, brut nature, rosé.., and wines in general as it's part of the mediteranean culture.
Cigars. Empeze a fumar purros a los 17, verderamente mas saborosos que cualquier pitillo.

Music, Movies, and Books

Fela Kuti ( afro beat), The Presets ( electro punk), Black Uhuru ( reggae dub), Gilles Peterson records ( couloured depends wich album you chose), Trentemoller ( minimal electro), The Doors ( rock US of the 70s), Casandra Wilson ( a sensitive voice of a true woman..jazz). the whitest boy alive ( modern funk). MPB, You know what¿¿Just have a look inside Jota Sound System hard drive! 500 megabites of "pepitas" tunes. You must find something you like, and please feel free to offer me any music, and pass me any interesting movies or documentary. I have to admit I have a very poor TV culture ( I am not laughing of the ones who have one telling that). I do not pay attention to news and media in general, no radio when possible, but good ones are welcomes.
My favourite moovie is La piscine ( Romy Schneider and Alain Delon...this is summer times! and a good way to introduce true meaning of ménage à trois)
Not that much books, it takes too much time to read. I had to read so many during my entertaining studies that I left them besides for a while. but I am reading a few per year anyway about strategical macro economy, philosophy, psychology...some cooking books of course time to time.but i am not for novels, I have my own life for that.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

be alive..

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some cooking ( I am a sailing chef on yachts), and so some sailing, or how to live with the minimum but at the maximum. I can make you practice you french and spanish and english or portuguese. I want to learn more about massage, even if people enjoy my sessions.
I want to remember you one day, and smile to myself.
