About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be a friend in someone else strange land ...

ABOUT ME

Hello there! :o)

I grew up in Peru, moved to Australia 6 years ago after being in the Amazon researching for a long time.

I am currently working full time in the Automotive Industry after a huge career change, I truly believe a life with changes and fresh starts up is a more colorful and rich life...

I lived in Venezuela where I was working for some time in a doctoral research of dispersal behavior of capybaras. I also went to Argentina for an International Course of Neotropical Primates, I studied Biology-Ethology (Animal Behavior).

I LOVE nature and LOVE TRAVELING as well, I used to travel all I could around my country, the jungle, highlands, hidden desert beaches that nobody heard from ... and lucky me, I still havent seen even half of all I want around it! :o)

I practiced FALCONRY, which is when u train a prey bird like eagles or hawks to fly to your arm when u whistle, very little explanation, but in reality is way more complex than that :)

I also like dancing... No wait! I LOVE DANCING and I DANCE a lot ... I have won some contest but thats not something I feel proud of, honestly ... I just do it for fun. Used to be a Cuban Salsa instructor in Australia a couple of years ago and I really enjoyed it as well.

I am in love with the moon ... I always go to the beach house which its in the south (btw im missing it already)

:o)

Randy.

PHILOSOPHY

I am a dreamer ... a passionate person, my heart has changed choices that my mind did once ...

I used to study Economy (3 years) but left it for Biology, I love animals and focus in Animal Behavior researching. Now living and working in Australia in a totally different career :)

I love Pachamama.

I call the moon "mi esposa" ( my wife ^^ )

I love dancing, I get completely lost with myself when I dance, I dance salsa, merengue and maybe samba if u beg me haha but is the only way I forget about everything thats going on in my mind at that moment ...

.................................................................................................................................................................................................. TO THE CRAZY ONES ... Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently.

They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo.

You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify them or vilify them. But the only thing you can't do is ignore them.

Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.

Maybe they have to be crazy. How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that's never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?

We make tools for these kinds of people. While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

THINK DIFFERENT

Music, Movies & Books

Music mmm I think I dont like only one type. The most I listen is Trova (Cuban) I feel sometimes that music choose you, you dont choose the music. I dont like commercial music by the way ... and of course, anything danceable is always good! ^^ Music depends in ur mood and has to do a lot with who you are with :o) Movies! All time favourites Seven, Star wars, Memento, Butterfly effect, La Vie est belle, Les intouchables, Todo sobre mi madre, Jeux d'enfants, etc I like most of Almodovar movies and Tarantino is a genious! :)

Books! Paulo Coelho ... The Fifth Mountain, The Alquemist, Veronica decides to die. Le Parfum by Patrick Suskind... Mafalda! and also John Livingstrong Seagull by Richard Bach ( its pretty small but so good! :) ), "Motorcycle Diaries" by the daughter of El Che, "Y Derepente, un angel" by Jaime Bayly ... that would be it, Taran Taran !
