About Me

I wrote a book on my travels, musician, playwright, photographer. I love to travel of course, music is my ultimate passion, both playing and listening. I love film. I love photography, and recording music. I've been playing drums for 20 years, and guitar, piano, bass on and off as well. I love language, I love to write, about anything and everything, life, satire, nature, critique, irreverence, how things and ideas evolve, studying influences, social change, what prompts our motivations. I love comparing and contrasting. I love maps, I try to remember to get a newspaper from every city, not only to see what's going on, but to see how we write, similarities and differences. Basically, I love spending time with friends, meeting new friends, and just having a good time.

I try to look past borders. I live to be as happy as possible and to meet great people. It's the people that make the place.
