About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Seeing the world through new gazes, wandering roads to find new directions

ABOUT ME

Someone defines me A Smiling curious soul, a backpacking gaze, some more formally a photojournalist practicer with a deep interest on humanitarian issues that works developing documentary projects on social issues.
About myself I'd say that I'm a crazy dreamer, a traveller soul that get the life following his dreams, a backpacking spirit on the road looking for his own one.

I study photojournalism, that's a fb page where you could find out more about my eyes and person.... https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.323281061213267.1073741837.299077120300328&type=3

I love all that's creative and any one try to get rid of standards, arts, music theatre and anything linked with the human creativity.
I love interacting with new people, discover a new song or image a day, get in touch with as many new different stories, places, cultures, life experiences and adventures as possible.
Interested in photography, social field, human rights, politics, international relations and much else.
And obviously parties overall as a pillows between everything.
I have spent a couple of years before the uni living moving across different cities, countries and couches, which I gained the best human, social and funny experiences possible, i would always prefer a couch to an house.
Currently I am full time studying a BA in photojournalism, and part time working as photographer and waiter.
In my hometown I created a web radio that deal on social, cultural and politics issues, working as reporter, I like get involved in social activism.
Few years ago i left my country and I start so living travelling, moving across different European cities lead by a great wish to look the life trough new and different gazes.

PHILOSOPHY

Follow your dreams, passion, ideal, fill up your life and soul with them, make them your just leader, beyond any society barrier and hardship,
do what you feel not what you should doin, make whatever day your day.

'Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain.

open and close every day with a smile, beyond everything could happens, look for the hide beauty on everything surrounding your days, follow your dreams with all your determination and nothing will be too far away.
