About Me

CURRENT MISSION

la peur a bon pas, to speak french, to play music & travel to the far-reaches

ABOUT ME

music and languages and the sounds that comprise both. arrangement in the graphic sense. information design. clothes-making avec ma copines. i like urban environments and i see promise in some. (DF, Mexico)

i lend time to singing and learning or writing words to sing. i play the guitar and the trumpet and know some theory behind it, not enough to rely.

PHILOSOPHY

trying is contrary, doing is auxillary. what are we left with? persistence? the world is seen through language. if you're puzzled, expand. life came before purpose. live fully first, communicate thoroughly and with few words, then purpose'll call back.
