  • Description

    I am a nomad who is in search of rest of my community and happy to expend that.
    I wish to share my work as well as my view to the world in any way I can.
    I am life time learner and love to grow and expend my horizon by getting to know new cultures, crafts and people who practising that.
    I worked since I was 8 years old and did lots of different jobs.
    I have wide range of interests: Arts, Architecture, Education, Social transformation, work with Children, Ecosystem, Geology, Archaeology, Astronomy and...
    Relation to the nature is very important to met: love the "Mother earth" and most of all I care about Children, creative process, and Education.
    Though I am 54 years old I have been living a healthy lifestyle: till last year I was teaching Dance/Theatre which asks for lots of physical strength.
    Within I feel young as long as I avoid looking at the mirror.
