What do you do and why do you do it?

In a few words: I am a graphic designer and a cyclist. I believe both of it makes me seek beautiful things, whether on screen and in real life, but also to flirt with other aspects such as architecture and arts. Besides that, I love to discover new and unusual places in the city, enjoying life outside.
