About Me


Mejorando la comunicación entre los humanos Enhancing communication between people


Soy muy sociable.
Tengo una gran variedad de intereses.
Me encanta compañía humana.

I like to communicate - talk a lot and am improving in listening ;-).
Have many interests
Really enjoy human company.


Respeto es importante
Actitud positivo
Si­ nunca mientes, no tienes que acordarte de lo que has dicho
Las mejores cosas que trae la vida es gratuito

Respect is important.
Positive and optimistic attitude - if things look bad, they will change for the better soon enough...
If you never lie, you will not have to remember what it was you said.
The best things in life are for free.
Zest is best
