Here's a bit more about me.

I was born on a computer almost 27 years ago. My dad being a technology professor,
I naturally grew up playing games, creating terrible websites and hacking my parents' attempts
at reducing the time I spent on the computer. With the development of the Internet, I became
interested in the possibilities it opened to create cool things, and eventually taught myself
web development languages. Wanting to have a bigger part in conceptualizing and loving to tell stories,
I became a copywriter but never lost my passion for digital.
