About Me




I am a logical but creative and deeply interested in arts guy, passionate about meeting other cultures and peoples. When I am not exploring some corner of the world you will probably find me taking photos, watching films, going to gigs, having a great dinner and drinking good beer/cider with good friends, dancing like no one is watching on a indie rock nightclub/gig, watching live sports on TV/at the closest stadium or at the outdoors enjoying nature.


"I want a life of unbelievable adventure and profligacy and at the last possible moment, sainthood. I want a life that makes sense."
