About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learn more about the world and its complexity.

ABOUT ME

Secular humanist. Terminally chill. Huge fan of sports in general. Films and TV series binge-watcher. Geopolitical observer. Always feel enthusiastic to hear storytellers tell their stories. Personally love to meet new people, talk with them, learn their cultures and languages.

PHILOSOPHY

"Don't ever judge someone you've never met."

"Let everything happen to you. Beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final."

"Happiness only real when shared."

"A good film makes you smile. A better film lingers on your mind. A great film stays in you."
