About Me


find interesting people. It's all about the people's stories after all.


Read a lot of books and studied hard but didnt get to know the true meaning of life so decided to challenge myself by learning from personal experience whats good and whats bad and what is there worth living for so that in some 40-45 years sitting in an old rocking chair I would have a couple of stories to tell to my grandchildren.
Its been 4 years since I set off on a long and interesting journey called journalism. Currently I work as a correspondent for a British news agency
which covers news from the countries of the past Soviet Union so I got to combine two things I love most - traveling and languages. Due to my work I move all the time and last year I moved to Thailand where I'm based at the moment.


If it's not there, then make it.
If it has been made, then take it.
If it has been taken, then steal it.
If it has been stolen, then it's not there.
