About Me

CURRENT MISSION

live as a free being while respecting nature and humans as much as I can

ABOUT ME

I am 26 years old, like to travel, to discover, to learn about other people's experience and traditions.

I am practicing judo for 20 years now, which implies that I am quite sportive and like all kinds of martial arts. But, the spirit behind the sport is really important to me; so judo isn't only sport and recreation, but also a way of living, thinking and meeting new people.

I love nature and human mankind (altough the latter has the unfortunate tendency to destroy the former). That's why I am impatient to discover new sights and traditions and help wherever I can to protect mother earth and help those who are in need.

PHILOSOPHY

Try to develop yourself as much as you can but always respect your fellow man.

I'm open to all kinds and styles of music, except those who have the tendency to be a little to extreme ...
Styles I particullary appreciate:
*electronic music (drum 'n bass, minimal techno): Ricardo villalobos, Plastikman, Kerry Chandler, Jeff Mills, Ronny Size and many many others
*gipsy music (electronic and non-electronic): fanfare ciacarlia, taraf de haidouks, mahala raï banda, gaetano fabri, dj shantel, ...
*indie/rock: bon iver, lykke ki, devendra banhart, sioen, eddie vedder, cocorosie, ...
* world music and jazz

I prefer newspapers and magazines to novels, but when I get good ones I am able to read them in a few days.
