About Me


To discover southern-europe


I`m a person who loves to laugh, but doesn´t do that very often, when I have one of mine "serious moods", but mostly I find my thinking to be positive and life-asserting. I think that with my mood swings and straightforwardness, I am a quite sincere person, who sometimes may be even a little bit naive. I like to do things that make me feel alive: skyjumpes, constantly changing my mind and hopefully soon diving. I usually keep my mind occupied with lot of different thoughts, projects, visions and memories. I love to find ways to capture those images and views in my head on film rolls and to see my thoughts and dreams in reality. I like to push myself ahead and to learn how to cope with everything.


I belive that every day is a wonderful possibility to do something. Things should not be put on hold, because they can`t wait. If something has bitten your soul, it is a sign that shouldn`t be left aside.

Music, Movies, and Books

I used to read a lot of estonian poetry (A.Alavainu, J. Viiding, A.Alliksaar, K.Ehing) and books, that seemed intresting (Lord of the flies, Prozac nation, books by P.Coelho, V. Merge, Dovlatov, M. Kundera, Voltaire). I can´t quite recall my favorite book at the moment, more the favorite moments in different books. Lately I have been reading novels(Guy the Maupassant) and short stories( G.Kunert), because of my lack of concentration. Also a lot of classic art history related books for example Baudrillard Conspiracy of art or Susan Sontag "On photography" etc.
From movies I have enjoyed films like "Peeping Tom", "Napoleon Dynamite" and from series "The IT-Crowd", "Garth Marenghi`s Darkplace", "The Mighty Boosh".
Music is something that I love. Especially bands like Crystal Fighters, Phantogram, John Maus, The Dò, Tom Vek, Balthazar, SBTRKT and also the classics like the Smiths, Joy Division, Pink Floyd, King Crimson.
