ABOUT ME

http://instagram.com/k_turro
https://www.facebook.com/carlosarturodeltoro

I have two degrees, one in psychology and one in philosopy, I also have an MA in Cognitive Science, so I really enjoy to talk to people, change their perspectives and be changed by theirs.
Right now I'm working with the Prosecutor Office, helping victims of the colombian conflict. At the moment I have been assigned the creation of a policy of inclusion for indigenous communities, LGBTI people and people with physical or mental disabilities.
I also own a small club of electronic music in Bogota and we played specially house, deep house, nu-disco, and techno.
I'm open-minded, and I enjoy the diversity, so I really appreciate any type of people.
I'm a cool guy, flexible, descomplicated, very clean, and I adapt to new situations very easy.
I like to share a beer or a glass of wine with friends, and really enjoy to have long conversations with people about anything.
I think that all of us are here to learn something, so, I love to learn from everyone.
