About Me

Hello!
I'm Paolo, 25 years old, Italian.
I currently live and work in London. I'm an Edit Assistant for a company that mainly deals with TV productions and live music events.

As stupid as it could sound, I love living my life. I like the endless possibilities you have in life.

I like to hear other people point of views about anything and I like to give mine.

I love exploring new places and ideas and I like to host someone who is open to the same. Someone who is a free spirit, passionate and who is interested in living life to its fullest.

PHILOSOPHY

"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun."

- Christopher McCandless (the guy the movie Into the Wild is based on)

"If you're going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don't even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery--isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you'll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It's the only good fight there is."

- Charles Bukowski
