About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Meet humanity otherway than through TV !

ABOUT ME

I'm a railway engineer interested in many socio-economical fields. I aim to discover and understand at best the world I'm living in.That's why I want to move to many places I could see and meet anybody or anything else.In a general way I accommodate quite easily to very different kind of person... excepted arrogant and proud ones.But in general manner, I'm extremely curious about new or different cultural environement.

PHILOSOPHY

Every day trying to enlighten the unknown. Each experience, even bad, will be profitable for you. Then you will learn and progress in your self building.
