About Me


Hack the Universe


I'm very curious. The world is too small for those who have eager foot. Are you curious too? If you are, click over the link https://youtu.be/IeTybKL1pM4 to see rabbits and their video!


Favourite Quote: "Who doesn't know, doesn't choose." You get more freedom as you learn other ways of thinking, perceiving and being. Enjoy the process.

"En una buena causa no hay derrotas, sólo victorias postergadas. / For a good cause there ain't no defeats, just delayed victories." Asimov

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Bet all your life in one simple change. Loose everything and start it over with the same old calmness.

Teach, Learn, Share

Nobody is so poor that doesn't have anything to teach and nobody is so wise that doesn't have something to learm. I've learnt that from my friend Rafael. I know how to deal with computers (and anything else that requires a huge amount of patience).

I can teach you how to prepare and drink an authentic mate, useful sailing knots, how to play chess, go and tangram.

I like learning something new everyday; from something or someone. Sometimes we can even surprise ourselves.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A chessboard, some books, good music and life.
