About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find a mission/ career/ home in the general field of world-saving

ABOUT ME

Somewhat bonkers with a huge heart. Reliable,
magnanimous, droll, accommodating, often too honest and spontaneous for my own good.

Hungry for joy, life, knowledge, insights, understanding, love and tacos. And pizza. I love pizza

Allergic to BS, mediocrity, people who believe they can read or judge others from few words or days spent together, especially people who are afraid of their feelings (or others').

PHILOSOPHY

Pay it forward
&
Never look down on anyone unless you're helping them up!

Music, Movies, and Books

Sweet Soul music, Jazz, R&B, 20's - 60's, Johnny Cash, Rat Pack, Richard Cheese, some Alternative/ Rock/ Rockabilly/ Ska, Reggae, even sometimes EDM

Seven Pounds, Cloud Atlas, Inception, Castaway, Cidade de Deus, Amelie, Bronson, Rock'n'Rolla, Slumdog Millionaire, Fight Club, From Dusk till Dawn, The Fifth Element ...

It's been way too long since I last read a book purely out of pleasure - so mostly specialized books (Culture, Management, Languages, Social Responsibility, Psychology etc.). But I'm sure I liked Lord of the Rings, Stephen King, Paulo Coelho, Nietzsche, Bukowski ...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbed up the hill next to the Pão de Açúcar in Rio with my best friend - spontaneous idea, wonderful memories!

The most amazing things are too personal to share here.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach - I can teach many things, but I would like to propagate joy, compassion, friendship, understanding, love, integrity.
Learn - There's no new lesson I would consciously turn down.
Share - All I have to share is a treasure box full of experiences and lessons learned; and the faith that even the most painful experiences are treasures.
