About Me

CURRENT MISSION

experience art

ABOUT ME

I'm a 22 year old student of Visual Arts.

PHILOSOPHY

If I had to choose something to believe in, I'll say that I believe in an art-world: art can transform the world, by making people more sensitive about the things that surround them, about our own perceptions and perspectives, by really LIVING, in harmony and in a beautiful way. A world without art for me is impossible.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm new at couchsurfing, but I'd like to travel and get to know people from other places and share good ideas and experiences.

Interests

Love to travel and meet new people and new places;
Love all kinds of art and art expressions;
Go out to have a beer or a wine in a nice bar, have a coffe in a little cafe, do a pic nic in a park, go out to dance, to see the sunset, to listen to people making music;
reading, talking, drawing, painting, photographing, walking around...
My favourite places are the desert, the beach, big citys and wineards.
