ABOUT

Artist & Technologist obsessed with life insights.

If you knew me in person you would know:

  • I love studying wisdom. I am constantly reading, pondering & scribbling in my notebook.
  • I am a minimalist. Frequent travel led me to appreciate the art of living light.
  • I am quite a nomad. I don´t know where or when I will settle.
  • I feel this planet is small and find the concept of country identity very XXth centurish.
  • I love beauty. It makes me go quiet inside and lifts my spirit.
  • Some words I resonate with: Authentic, Freedom, Silence, Simple, Presence.

The formal stuff:
