I also love so much Jazz, blues and classical music.

My favorite writers are Nikos Kazantzakis, Jiddu krishnamurti and Jorge Bucay.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Done: During my short life, I was able to accomplish some of my dreams that I had when I was a kid.
Make trustful and amazing Friends.
I realized how wonderful is to receive and give love with no exchanges.
Having for a job one of passions. Photography ;)
Learned to do and participate in sports like swimming, hiking on mountains, rock climbing and triathlon.
Dancing in Latin music is my new big passion and I can't wait to learn more about this.
Traveled (of course) to other countries and met with local people there.
Seen: All what I have seen so far through all my travels, was unique and very exciting experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach you: I can show you how you can take technically good pictures and give you short lessons in Photoshop ;)
Swimming lessons if pool or sea is around.
And I can show you the basic steps and some moves in Salsa and bachata ; )
Learn from others: I'm open to learn everything that will make me a better person. The most interest for me is, when someone wants to share his knowledge (whatever this is) with other people.
Share with others: All the kind of conversations, cooking, eating, exercising, dancing, walking around, cycling, rock climbing, listen to live music, are some of my favourite things to do.
