About Me


Keep on having new interests, challenges, objectives and love


I'm an easy going guy. I have sense of humor and many friends; I love traveling by train while reading a good book, I love coffee even If I don't smoke anymore, all genres of music (except country, mainstream radio hits and some latin songwriters), composing songs in the computer when the inspiration comes, playing guitar and learning how to play piano and I'm a 'passionate people meeter'.


You are what you share...


I'm specially interested in music, in international development and governance, in an alternative economy, in different and richer ways of responsible and respectful traveling, in fighting injustice and poverty. Cinema and literature and graphic novels. I'm interested in science and learning. I prefer small shops where you talk for an hour with the owner to cold and ugly malls. I like to experience and to live things authentically. I don't like mass tourism and mass tourists at all.
