Me encanta la música de todos los estilos, especialmente el jazz, blues, soul, R&B, instrumental, latino, salsa, cumbia, rock, hip hop ... Y por supuesto, quiero conocer los estilos de cada país. Me gusta aprender nuevos idiomas, aprender sobre culturas, costumbres y tradiciones, convivir con nuevas personas, por esto y más me encanta viajar por todo el mundo.

You've got to take the good with the bad, smile with the sad, love what you've got, and remember what you had. Always forgive, but never forget. Learn from mistakes, and try to be better every day. Give and spread love... LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST doing what you love!!!
