Even though I ramble about many topics, the one word 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. Being a minimalist is about intention and consciousness.

I live in my dear, sunny city of 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.

I have a talent for exploiting my creative imagination and I love to write down my thoughts and reflect on random ideas. Hence, this blog. Besides writing here, I’m a Product Designer at Automattic where I currently design WordPress themes. I also curate fashion, design and art, and I sing and make music when I’m at the peak of my inspiration.
