About Me

Philosophy Ph.D. candidate. Moving to Charlottesville, US in Aug-2015 for 5 years of Ph.D. studies. SCUBA diver, free diver, gamer, backpacker, paraglider. Stories to tell. Into metal and electronic music. Into fantastic and sci-fi literature and film. Into psychedelic culture.

I enjoy a smart, deep, mind-opening conversation. I enjoy nature. If I have to choose, I prefer wonders of nature over beautiful cities. When I visit cities, I prefer to meet unique people, hear stories or have unique experiences over visiting landmarks. I can also be a partygoer when I feel like it.
