About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live without haste

ABOUT ME

I like imagination.I like trees. And theatre. And movies. And my bike (particularly at night). And reading and hearing stories. I like to laugh and see people laugh. I like to drink ouzo and play the begleri. I like being and walking (and waking up) in nature. I love it when the light goes off at the cinema. I like to listen to music, to talk to people, to be by the sea or the mountains. I like mythology & Antiquity. I like to do projects having to do with films. I like food. I am obsessed with the sea. I like football (as all guys should). I don't have a smartphone or facebook. I don't appreciate consumer-society. I like tea and coffee houses. I don't like to wear a watch. I hate being in a rush. I like to dance. I like time. I'd like to have more time to travel, to learn to dance, to drink tea (especially green). I like to travel, discover new places and people. I like to walk and run. I like poetry. I like to dream and talk about dreams. I like to make b&w photography. I think there are more things to like than to dislike on earth.

PHILOSOPHY

"I am a pessimist because of intelligence, but an optimist because of will. " (Gramsci)
