About Me


Exploring Europe as much as possible


I love making art, painting, silkscreen, litho, drawing. I love concerts and live music, as much as I can. I like living in the moment, not taking things too seriously. I like doing yoga it is magic. I like smoking, drinking coffee, drinking tea. I also love the great outdoors, walking, hiking, exploring, and of course, going out for drinks in this amaaaaaazing city. I love meeting new people who have good energy. Am really looking forward to going to india this summer. or meeting couch surfers and planning an adventure


Strive to achieve whatever you think you cannot for it is on the path toward your impossible dream that you will find what you truly seek.

It is through your body that you realize you are a spark of divinity.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

my life is one long dream

Teach, Learn, Share

i love learning from and being around people that are thoroughly in the moment, not thinking ahead and worrying about the future and not going on about the past or where they used to live or what they do but being eyes open in the present, stopping and chatting, listening, learning. but ultimately i learn from everyone.
