About Me


development and balance


Journalism and documentary filmmaking are my biggest passions, but I also enjoy many other things in life... and life in general, even some stressful times and sad moments :)


if basic needs are met, happyness depends on state of mind, not on external conditions

almost all bad events in life can be good for something
