About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Living more moments that define me and are a pleasure to remember

ABOUT ME

A guy walking the path towards many objetives... enjoying the life that i have left; becoming more genuine; laughing more; closing the gap between what i believe and what i do; appreciating the little gifts of everyday life; valuing people around me without being ruled by their expectations or opinions; freeing myself from all the constant influences that set me on endless chases for unfulfilling things...I believe in a quote by Abe Lincoln "And in the end, it´s not the years in your life that count. It´s the life in your years"

PHILOSOPHY

I´m humble enough to realize I´ve got A LOT to learn, but I also know I have a thing or two to share. My three driving forces are freedom, joy and friends/family.
