About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Save the world :) ... at least make life better, more enjoyable and pleasant for the ppl of Planet Earth

ABOUT ME

mmm brief, huh?

I'm matias, yup, a magic elf who managed to go through an enchanted mirror but still never left wonderland...

Hometown, Buenos Aires city, Argentina... In charge of all Engineering operations in LATAM South for a French Company so I get to travel like a ping pong ball most of the time... I spend most of my days resting on sweet cotton clouds. Located in a type of twilight zone by wonka world though without golden tickets...

I believe that this life was designed for me... and I live it like that...

Lot's of happiness and joy to share... positive energy and rock'n roll baby bay bay yeah yeah honey... I enjoy each second of my life and got to learn how to get the most out of the simplest things...

Passionate and addicted to whatever does me good... I absolutely love travelling... meeting new ppl and getting to know new cultures and experiencing other ones' lives through long chats...

Sometimes writer, always arty and crazy about photography and design... highly-techy... self-organized and kinda structured though flexible... I try to keep myself doing the infinite stuff i enjoy...
I hate rutine but love to follow my calendars.

I can get to sleep in wherever place u may think of... even standing... I get great pleasure out of long walks around new places or even old ones where I get to discover new shapes and spots...

Naturally Nomad... I live with a backpack attached even in my daily life... running, inline skating, adrenaline seeker... i love change and I hate going blind with the flow...

PHILOSOPHY

Life is wonderful... u just need to get the most out of each moment, each frame...
