About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Understanding how to make modern life better.

ABOUT ME

Enseño sobre filosofía ambiental, estética y los griegos antiguos. También hago música (experimental, merengue punk, toco bajo y programo beats).

Me encanta conocer gente nueva y auténtica, poder reír y compartir historias, explorar el corazón de una ciudad, siempre aprender cosas nuevas, y hacer fiestas memorables.

Amo a mi ciudad y mis amigos.

En este momento quiero conocer más sobre las ciudades latinoamericanas: esa mezcla extraña de una cultura sobre otra, de familiaridad y violencia, sus intentos de conseguir la inclusión y la paz.

I teach about environmental philosophy, art, and the Greeks. I also do music (experimental, punk, merengue, play bass, program beats).

I love meeting people, hanging out in the heart of a city, learning new stuff, and hosting memorable parties.

I love my city and my friends.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

-One thing seen:
I've seen the most transparent people in some lost forest in the Andes, living with and from the land, giving everything.

-One thing done:
I've radically reinvented myself twice.
