ABOUT ME

“You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.” -Cristóbal Colón

My friends say I am creative, imaginative, persistent, direct, passionate, maybe a little too much sometimes…
I can tell you that I am a humanitarian and a philosopher, and sometimes this makes me go astray from my path… People give me motivation and strength to go on. I am also a dreamer; I always try to be loyal and helpful. As an adventurous person I believe that anything is possible.

What  makes me tick?

Storytelling, the Human mind, Nature, Beauty.
I love to portray the beautiful, to transmit my passion, to appeal for a good cause.  Creating and building is part of my drive. Sunshine and Water are essential ingredients to my energy. People in my life play a big role towards my being. Versatile and multicultural, I thrive on learning as well as teaching and new experiences give me wings!

Maybe in another life or another era I would have been a psychologist or worked for an international mission for an NGO like Doctors without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières) or been a reporter for some news agency or even a film maker. I often joke that I descend from Christopher Columbus as I am a nomad with some Latin spirit. This would have been the best ever to explore lands sailing the seas!

In this life I am tour guide, a teacher, a traveller and every single time it has been a part of my essence.
I try to better the world everyday, not to think too much (that is a hard one!) enjoy the moment and appreciate people and myself for who we really are.

At heart I am an artist, a traveller, an educator, and these aspects have always been part of me.
I have been to many places, physically and spiritually and this has broadened my horizon.
If you look well, you can find my reflection in my images.

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
