Biography

"I took up the challenges, even those no directed to me.
But maybe the most beautiful thing I’ve been able to collect is the company of other travelers following my own deranged compass.
And today I’m here Immersed into a desire to keep lifting the head and look beyond this unearthing what’s more.
Cause I keep having in my suitcase a horizon and the deranged consciousness that it never uses up there"
