About Me


Love to listen to music almost all hours of the day, and I also love to make music. My hobbies are also my profession, so that's why I am a freelance artist. I love to exercise my passion for photography and film-making, taking every opportunity to make movies and take photos as much as possible.

"Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible." Dalai Lama XIV

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couchsurfing connects very like-minded people together all over the world. The best way to see any city is through the eyes of its people, and having the opportunity to do this and share each-others company, is a perfect example of how to world should be. You get what you give!
