About Me


Enjoying , carpe diem!


Hey Guys & Ladies,
I just got back from Brazil, I was living there for 2 years and now Im back in my beloved Amsterdam.

Now a little about me,well let me start by saying I don't like to be put in a box cos I'm a lil of everything mixed into one.
I've lived in quiet a lot of countries, and at the moment I'm living while travelling. I seem to suffer a travel itch, so I'm never in one place for longer than 2 years.
I'm a performing Singer & Dancer, Music is my passion and I try to make a living out of it. Music equals life for me.
Besides music, I adore good food, that is made with the heart and I'm a sushi addict. I have lust for life, with all its extremes. And I love people. Im a very curious person, like to discover new things, adventures and to travel. Besides im interested in different languages and cultures. Also I like to see things that are beautiful to the eye such as art, photography and interior. Im crazy, social, I can be intense and light. Most of the time I try to have a lot of fun, live in the moment and meet interesting openminded people.


Life is my party, and u are invited!
