Life is an ever-changing adventure, and I'm on a constant quest for growth and evolution.On one hand, I thrive in the dynamic world of marketing and communication consulting, where I help businesses of all sizes craft compelling content and connect with their communities.On the other hand, I'm fueled by a deep curiosity and passion for spirituality and philosophy, which has led me on a journey of self-discovery through various religions, meditation practices, and sacred plants.My thirst for knowledge and my intuition guide me as I explore the mysteries of existence and seek to uncover the ultimate truth.This is the story of my life, a never-ending quest for wisdom and enlightenment.

BOOK AND PODCAST
On average, I read about 10 hours a week since I was five years old. Some weeks more, some weeks less.The authors of books become my virtual friends and mentors because I can always absorb their words and turn them into my knowledge.I read between 50-100 books every year and summarise the Top 10 books to my friends and family members.
