About Me


Spread love, independency, and freedom of thoughts.


I´m like a huge collection of paradoxal thoughts. I love reading, for sure I´m a internet addicted as well, I love my work more than myself, I would give my life to a kid´s smile and I agree that living isn´t as necessary as travelling. But, despite that I´m truly a bohemian person, love parties, bars, drinking and almost anything like that. By the way, I hate and avoid all tipe of discrimination. I don´t believe in any sort of religion, but I do believe that we wouldn´t be on this earth to suffer or make the others feel pain. All we can and certanly have to do is enjoy, without causing anyone troubles, whatever does it means for you.


Do whatever you want, if doesn´t cause harm to anyone. Have an open heart and mind. Don´t discriminate, remember all we got are chances and so does everybody else. The fear of dying is normal, but be afraid of life is stupidness. All your efforts can change your world and they worth it, just do and then you´ll prove. Finally, love can move montains...

Music, Movies, and Books

I love reading so much that is easier put some of the authors, or I´d spend a day writing the books: Goethe, Tolstoy, Sartre, Dostoievsky, Nietzche, Heine, Steinbeck, Machado de Assis, Gabriel García Marquez,... and some others I forgot.

I like rock´n roll, but nothing too hard: U2, Patty Smith, The Cure, The Smiths,... To party I like elotronic music, specially house. I love tango, since Gardel until Bajo Fondo.

Movies: Non te moviere, La Ley del Deseo (and all the others Almodovar made with the same message), Abre los ojos, Atonement, Amores Perros, El secreto de sus ojos, Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Godfather.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It´s amazing the way the cuban people are happy, friendly and kind only having that ron to have fun with. It´s stunning how the argentinians can dance tango and how politized their whole society is. It´s really curious that italians have all that history and don´t care about it. It´s funny to see how India´s kids look like little adults. For me it´s so weird that people have no garages in Switzerland, but I guess they think the same way about our need to save everything we own from the robbers in Brazil, like our facility to kiss anyone and to walk around without almost any clothes... In fact, the most amazing thing in this world is all this diversity.

Teach, Learn, Share

I´m here and I can share whatever I know, just because I love learning anything new. And when I tell anything, believe me.
