I don’t care to talk much about myself, but I guess its justified and necessary. Besides, I’m being told on my blog that its not kind to not present myself, so here you go, a few words (well more then a few) on what I am :-)
First of all I am headstrong, proud (in the more negative sense of the word) and as stubborn as a mule. I’m intuitive, disorganized, yet other times obsessively precise in a completely random way. Unstable yet courageous to the point of recklessness. I like everything that is new, I love to learn, to study and am naturally creative in any field.
I bore easily and I hardly ever rest, I am pathologically incapable of staying still, even if I have an extreme need too. I figure I’ll have plenty of time to rest when I’m gone…I know, not the best, taking a break is important, little by little I will learn too.
When it comes to many things I can be ridiculously naive, I’ll have a long learning curve and then all of a sudden I’ll take off; I mean I’ll compartmentalize all the data for a very long time without learning a thing and then all of a sudden get it all at once.
I’m a graphic artist, I graduated in 1993 from the Istituto Europeo di Design in Rome, with a thesis entitled Interzona – analisi di un nuovo modo del sapere e degli scambi intellettuali. I am mentioning the thesis because its during this time that I started taking my first web steps and it was a turning point, that completely changed my life. Lets say I found my missing island and went to live there forever.
I’ve been working on the web for a long time, when in Italy the only modems around were the ones that made a bunch of weird noises to connect….and there was only agorà.
I even have a personal blog, from 2002 (!) but its not open to comments because it was born as a diary only, where I annotate my most intimate ideas and sensations.
I paint and design, you can see some here, again on interzona.
I took Hip Hop classes for six years, which instilled in me an immense passion (and nostalgia) for dance.
I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, I don’t do drugs (I’m naturally dopey); first place in my values is sincerity, then love, friendship, respect, peace and freedom.
I can’t stand aggression, laziness, egoism, I try to stay as far away as possible from people and situations that emit a negative energy, because I am extremely empathetic and incapable of shutting it out even when necessary.
My life is sprinkled with showstoppers and changes; now I am starting to grow and finally feel more serene. I have a partner who I love immensely and an extremely intelligent and wonderful little girl (scarafone non lo traduco…e’ un detto italiano….
Its been a year since we decided to move to the country, and as soon as we can we’re going to grow a garden and maybe even have a few chickens :-)
I started this blog because throughout the years I had to learn to defend myself from all the poisons that I absorbed through my food and I cured myself for a few years with nutritional therapy which worked wonders on me, and I thought it might be a good thing to share all that I had learned with whoever might be interested or just curious; either way I love cooking and photography, so it all came very natural.
