I developed the ability of non-belonging anywhere or anything. I don’t want to sound like a snob saying that I’m a citizen of the world (I hate snobs and privilege, even my own). Although traveling is one of my favorite things to do, I’d instead say, I’m a globetrotter or at least apprentice.

The sense of detachment makes consolidated statements or similar sound overwhelming to me. I don’t like to get my vision blurred about the bad and good aspects of the group I belong to because how “special it is” and how much I’m supposed to love it.

I find this feeling kind of relieving and gives me freedom of movement, but it has a drawback; sometimes makes me feel like I have no home and I’m lost in the middle of nowhere. The good thing is that it’s just a temporary feeling that disappears after putting my mind to work.

After a 17 years career, I got tired of working for empty projects that would only help to make rich people richer, and they wouldn't have any intention to use their money for a meaningful cause. So I decided to quit and use my talent for a better purpose. After traveling for a year in South America, I decided to create Nomad Cook, a project that gives voice to people that, otherwise, wouldn't have it.https://nomadcook.org
