I travel a lot. My motto has been "move to improve" and im in constant search for that one place that will challenge and inspire me. My foot is constantly tapping, my fingers always looking for the closest flat surface to drum on, and my mind is always trying to imagine what the lives of the people on the bus looks like.
Im obsessed with anything that has to do with 7'th Art and Im a sucker for beautiful cinematography and excellent screenwriting.
I love meeting interesting people which is why Im trying to learn Esperanto. If you speak it, you're cool.
I cant do this. Im biased. No matter how hard I try, it just sounds like Im selling myself instead of presenting myself.
Friends have encouraged me to give writing a shot. Creative nonfiction and magic realism fascinate me and I hope one day to write something that will make at least one person FEEL something.
But hey, ask the frog-faced french existentialist what people are doing with their lives . What do I know?
The fact that Im probably staring at those people trying to imagine what they're thinking hahaha.

~ Cups of steamy Moroccan mint tea. "The first glass is as gentle as life, the second glass is as strong as love, the third glass is as bitter as death."
