hey, that’s me!

If there’s one thing I can say about myself is that I’m very indecisive. (Or am I?)

To cite a few examples, this is the reason why I took Math and Physics in high school to end up in Art School. It’s why I studied 6 months in Italy and then 6 months in Austria. It’s why I want to live in Lisbon, but also everywhere else.

So if you ask me if I want cake or ice cream I’ll say “I don’t know, so I guess I’ll have both.” (To be frank, if this is not your answer as well, what are you doing with your life?)

So I’ll be an editorial designer, a web designer & developer, but also everything else that interests me. I’ll be a book hoarder, a synchronised swimmer, a polyglot, a Netflix critic, a meme reviewer and a breakfast at dinner eater.

did someone say art school?
