About Me

I'd like to consider myself a friendly, relaxed, respectful, and open-minded person. Big cities make me feel alive, and nature reconnects me to my spirituality. My biggest passion is art of all kinds, and I'm also very into meditation, yoga, activism, and conscious lifestyles... and always seeking to learn more from whoever I come into contact with.

"Pendare nik, goftare nik, kerdare nik" - an ancient Persian Zoroastrian mantra which translates as "good thoughts, good words, good deeds."

"Querer es poder" - "To want is to be able to" / "To love is power"

One Amazing Thing I've Done

One of my favorite places on Earth are the Kuna Blas (San Blas) islands off the coast of Panama and Colombia. I love beaches, and these were the most impressive, pristine beaches I've ever seen, plus they have interesting culture - they're inhabited by one of the most intact indigenous cultures in the world.
