This is Me: The Story So Far

Kui teised peol käisid ja muusikat kuulasid, siis mina ütlesin “aga siin pole ju mingit informatsiooni” ja kuulasin BBCd ja UCLA loenguid edasi.

Kris was around when his dad, stepfather, and uncle all started Technology startups. Being around computers and technical gadgets from the age of two, he developed a strong bond with tech. He developed the first website for the Estonian Wireless movement with his father. Kris had his first go at photography at the age of 15 with digital cameras he could borrow form his mom’s workplace. He earned his pocket money making websites for companies in Estonian and abroad. At University he studied Media and during the second year started ‘being a famous fashion photographer’.  

Kuupäev: ammu-ammu

Oma nooruses olin ma laisk ja lohakas. Käitumises iseloomustas mind erisugune loidus. Tihti veetsin aega pilvi vahtides. Kunagi ei tulnud mulle pähe teha tööd või aidata teisi inimesi. Kuigi mind saatis armastus looduse vastu, ei teinud ma midagi, et loodust kaitsta või paranada loomade elujärku. Ma ei vaevunus isegi nende nimesid korralikult pähe õppima. Aastate jooksul sain täiskasvanuks ja siiski, ühel päeval, juhtus see, et astusin sisse loodusteaduste instituuti. See päev muutis mu elu.
“Tere,” ütles preili sekretär.
“Tere! Mina olen härra see ja see,” vastasin viisakalt ja palusin kohtumist härra direktoriga.

Sel hetkel see juhtuski -  elumuutus: sisse astus rühikas härra direktor. Tegemist oli minu isaga.

Mul ei ole oma elufilosoofiat. Ma lihtsalt räägin seda, mis pähe tuleb. Mõni psühooloog võib sellest paremaid järeldusi teha kui mina.

“Öelda, et evolutsiooniteooria ei kehti, on öelda, et miski on Jumalast puutumata. Kuid Jumal on kõiges.”

Kui ma olin väike, tahtsin saada arvutimängude testijaks. Neljaselt tegin kõigile Siemens-Nixdorfi peal tetrises tuule alla. Paar aastat killisime Wolfenstein 3Ds naabripoisiga pahasid. Naabripoisist sai lõpuks joodik; minul on nüüd silmanägemine kehv. Tuleviku suhtes meil suuri lootusi ei ole.
Kui ma olin 12 siis ma armusin dominikaani vabariigis banaanimüüja tütresse ja tahtsin sinna jääda ja vanemad maha jätta. Mõtlesin, et hakkan ka banaane müüma.
This is my story so far.
Born in 1997 the coldest winter of the decade. I’ve written
how hard it was for my dad back then.
2002-2002 Kris was active in Photoraphy and wanted to be a photographer
in 2002 and 2003 Kris was making websites on his spare time from school.
The money he made bought me a ticket to South America (with the help
of many generous sponsors) for a year. He became friendly with Tango
dancers, traveled to Chile, Peru, and Bolivia and made this Photo
essay.
2003 Kris created the WiFi.ee portal with his dad
He spent the 2005 summer in Brazil and went to the 2005 Samba
carnaval which he counts as one of the things that changed his
life.
In 2006-2007 Kris was depressed. He wanted to do something
about Climate Change but did think of anything.
- Had an idea to do a street Fashion blog in Lisbon which
never realized. Went back to Lisbon in 2009 and made it
happen.
- Had an idea for ArtBart which hasn’t been realized so
far but discussions wit the BART company are in the works.
In 2007 Kris became interested in Social Media, Facebook,
Twitter – the works… went to study av media in Tallinn
University and wrote this paper one the issue.
Wanted to start making iPhone apps withour success.
Got interested in the issues of the borders of Europe and
stayed for over a month on Madeira researching local
culture and identity. Made friends with the local
communyt and went to a Madeiran family Christmas
dinner. Desertas, Porto Santo. French islands.
Wante to make a film but due to lack of funding
postponed.
In 2008-2009 he went to Portugal for a year and became
interested in African issues and learned to speak
Portuguese
In 2009 He is making a film abot Sao Tome and Principe,
a tiny island with lots of oil and friendly people.
And even democratic governance for 10 years.
Part of a bigger project on Lusophone countries.
