About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Influence society in a good way

ABOUT ME

I'm an idealist that is always curious.

I've found out that art is something I have to do. Though I don't try to constrain my self to a set image of what that entails.

My nature is always finding fresh ways of looking at things.

Friends are really important and I like doing things with them.

PHILOSOPHY

You should not do what your good at, you should do something that motivates you.

You can't be romantic about something you think you know.
