My friends say I'm from another world.
I dream about a world without borders, where people feel free and that they belong where they are passing by or staying.
Who I am? ((take a look on my album) The answer is not always ready, it depends on the circumstances...but always open to learning and sharing.
I love cooking, dancing, talking, preparing delicious juices, drinks,
watch the sunrise. the rising of the full moon, the stars.
I'm a biologist, specializing in environmental technologies, factor 10, and conscientious consumption.
among other skills
I studied photography, massage therapy (Swedish, Thai, tantric), origami,
I was a theater actor, I participated in a dance group for 7 years.
I've planted more than 100 trees and hosted more than 2,000 couchsurfers.
I also love handcrafts (macramé, joinery, carpentry)
Now I'm trying to improve my musical skills (guitar, harmonica, piano)
