I ramble about many topics, so the main idea that can connect this blog is minimalism. I realised I had become a minimalist a few years ago after acknowledging it removed the feeling of chaos from my life. It’s more about intention and consciousness than wearing all white clothes and it’s harder than it looks.
I live in Lisbon, Portugal where I was born, raised and where I’ll probably be buried. Besides maybe too many good memories attached, there are a bunch of good reasons to live here. I mean, Madonna lived here.
I tend to be a quiet person, but also have tendencies to be eccentric and full of energy. Regardless, I’m a deep thinker who firmly believes in a number of causes. I don’t care too much for traditions and social standards and tend to do things my own way.
One of my pet peeves is when people try to constrain or limit me, since I crave freedom and independence. I can appear cold or insensitive, but I have a deep, genuine concern for humanity, and a special interest in women’s issues.
I have a talent for exploiting my creative imagination and I need to write down my thoughts and reflect on random ideas. Hence, this blog. Besides writing here, I work as a Product Designer at Automattic. I have a Tumblr where I usually get inspired, and I sing and make music whenever I can.
