About Me




I'm an idealistic and spontaneous person. I enjoy sharing with people what we learned on the life road, especially stories, passions, art. I'm a nature lover, just listening the wind in the trees make me happy. I try my best to open my eyes to see the gifts that life left on the road, even if sometimes it doesn't look like gifts..


Each person is an artist, and our masterpiece is our life!
