Filling my life with more love. Love of people, love of things I do, love of knowledge, love of loving.
Hi, I'm Masa. I believe my life is my art (your life is your art too) and I value things like freedom, love, and beauty.
Curiosity is what drives my life and among other amazing things in life, Iâm keen on martial arts (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Submission Wrestling and Judo), music, dancing (Argentine Tango), philosophy (the analytic kind), understanding the male-female dynamics and eating&cooking food. Iâm interested in thinking and writing about creativity, curiosity, love, relationship and authenticity.
My perspective has been influenced and shaped by the following:
* Listening to punk rock and applying the punk rock way of thinking to my life
* Living in Australia for a long time as an international student
* Studying philosophy at university
* Practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Judo
* Learning what it takes to be an attractive man and taking action about it
So, this is me. Iâm up for making the world more romantic. Watch me do it or be part of it.
You can read my interview here (http://www.creativevoyage.co.uk/node/650).
My life is my art. I'm creating it for myself and to share what I learnt through the process of creating it with others.
I'm a positive&optimistic person with some logical thoughts behind it. After all, there are things we can't control and it's silly to worry about them. Instead of focusing my energy and resources on such uncontrollable things, I focus on what matters, control what I can control (i.e. myself and what I do), and choose to live for excellence.
(By the way, I wish this section wasn't named "Personal Philosophy" - the reason why I feel this way is because I'm interested in philosophy as an age-old academic discipline and believe that the sense of 'philosophy' as used in this category doesn't really match with philosophy as an academic discipline. This usage can create some misconceptions about philosophy as an academic discipline and its general practice.)

Music, Movies, and Books
I do like watching good movies, but I fall asleep easily. I'm not really a movie guy.
Punk rock and hard core punk influenced me a lot. I like 80s and 90s American punk&hardcore. I appreciate pretty much any kind of creative endeavors no matter whether I like it or not.
Let's just say Kafka and Bukowski. I like reading.
