A little about me

Native from the world, born in Barcelona.

Creativity is the engine of my life, it drags me to write, cook, develop, play music, imagine, compose.

Above all things I value my time, so I strive for saving as much as I can to spend it doing what I love. I love people, life, animals. Tea, Coffee, books, Chopin, electronic music, travelling, family, friends, people who smile, photography, shoes, Netflix, reading, learning. Every cheese is my favourite.

< life > I . keep . moving < /life >

Keen on cultures and diversity, I lived in London, Madrid, Barcelona, Munich and Berlin.
That's why I speak Spanish, Catalan and English, I study German and aim for French.
