Interests

Apart from my passion for design and writing, when I am outdoors I spend most of my time meeting with friends for a beer or going to the cinema. When I have the chance I keep improving my knowledge about surfing. I am still a novice.

When forced indoors, I follow a number of movies and television shows, I am an avid reader, and I spend a large amount of my free time exploring the web searching for curiosities, latest trend in design and learning more about front-end web development.
