About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

well... I was born in Bulgaria, I've lived in Basque country, Occitània and Mexico. Now I came back to Catalunya but I have no idea where I'll be even for the near future.I used to go to rock shows (specially USA bands) all over Europe but the last few years I have no time to do it;from 2009 to 2011 i traveled more than 150 000 km only around europe; I don't know for how long I will be in Catalunya, maybe next yeear I will go back to Mexico.

PHILOSOPHY

We know more about war
than we do about peace,
more about killing
than we know about living
