About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to find a way to scape

ABOUT ME

Well, the basics: I'm very small, I love travelling (really? who'd think of that...), I'm a bit shy but I like to talk, I'm very grumpy when I wake up, but after some coffee I'm all smiles. I like to smile and I like to make people smile. And I really like to be nice and polite to everyone. It's so easy and usually very rewarding. Oddly enough, people aren't used to niceness (bad, bad world). My friends also say I'm funny. And no, I'm not perfect. Not AT ALL. Right now, I'm reaching an age when a person needs to decide what to do with one's life (is it?). And I have no clue of what I want. As you see, I'm a mess. But I think you'll like me anyway.

Things I love: cinema, music, books, cheese, sunsets, penalty kicks, penguins, beer, surprises, cold weather, chocolate, david lynch, air conditioner, orchids, cats, sushi, airports, tequila, remote control, sleeping, london, hugs, honest lies.

Night Shyamalan, Sofia Coppola, Monty Python, Wes Anderson, some korean/chinese/japanese filmmakers I can't spell (I'm in love with oriental cinema), etc, etc, etc... Also love silly, predictable and adorable romantic comedies.

Music: Weezer, Beatles, Oasis, Arcade Fire, The Smiths, Radiohead, Strokes, Cardigans, Camera Obscura, Portishead, Britney Spears, Miles Davis, Nina Simone, Phoenix, Smashing Pumpkins, Belle and Sebastian, Air, Chet Baker, Yo la Tengo, Velvet Underground, Amy Winehouse, Los Hermanos, Chico Buarque, Caetano Veloso...

Books: Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Caio Fernando Abreu, Clarice Lispector, Daniel Galera, Julio Cortazar, John Fante, Edgard Allan Poe, Ian McEwan, Phillip Roth, J.L.Borges, Schultz, Quino, Liniers...

Also addicted to TV series! The favorite ones at this moment are Mad Men, Homeland, Newsroom, Community, Girls, New girl and The Big Bang Theory. Seinfeld and Lost will never die in my heart. But I watch pretty much everything. Also love trashy reality shows (it's true, what can I say?)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

To know people. I'm always surprised on how this can be extraordinary. And also: - My trip to Argentina in 2007. Just changed my life. - Ushuaia and Atacama. Two of the most amazing places in the world. - The exact moment I took the first look at London, from the plane. Finally seeing the city I always knew to be my favorite in the whole world was amazing!
