A BIT MORE
My personal interests coincide with the professional. The extraordinary drive and energy gives the process of co-creation with the like-minded people, a circle that is constantly expanding thanks to friends, colleagues, partners and clients. An inspiration is drawing out from family, music, reading, spontaneous meetings with friends, outdoor activities, yoga, dance and travel by bicycle.
