About Me


Discover the world and myself. develop my talents. Be human.


I am a young adult eager to explore and experience what the world has to offer. I am intellectual and introspective, yet also love to forget about it all and dance like there's no tomorrow. I am wandering through the world on my search for truth while trying to have a good time on the way.
My current passion is dance. Contact improv, Modern, Meditative, Embodied emotional expression. Music is also a big one, I play several instruments.


Love. My life is my message.
