About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Just about to move to the Basque country after a year living in Madrid. Happy to return to one of the most amazing places in Spain. In the search of a new home, ideally near the countryside and the sea.

ABOUT ME

I´m a 35 year entrepeneur interested in sustainable living.

PHILOSOPHY

I´m an open minded person. I believe in respect as the basis of understanding between people. I embrace difference and love to engage with other cultures. I don´t like any kind of violence and strongly believe that communication is the answear to any problem. I think that humankind is part of nature and should therefore respect and take care of the environment.
I believe that love is the most important thing in life and that you have to take care of the people arround you becouse they are the biggest treasure in life. I share the political views of the 15M movement in Spain.
