About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To enjoy life as much as possible :)

ABOUT ME

I'm an outgoing, easygoing, open minded guy, who loves to travel. I quit my job recently, sold off most of my possesions and hit the road. I don't have a return date, flight or plan. I just want to stay on the road as long as I enjoy it. I recently spent 10 months in Central & South America, a month in Australia and Tasmania. I worked in Austin, Texas last year, and fell in love with US. My Job - designing the microchips for smartphones. I love going to music & art festivals, with burning man being top of my list - I'm a burner! I also like food, travel & cycling. My city bucket list: Tehran, Beirut, Berlin, New Orleans, Seville :)

PHILOSOPHY

Live and let live. Life's to short to worry.
