SHORT BIO

I grew up in East Berlin when it was still weird. When everything was shifting from how it used to be to anything that could be. Back then Berlin wasn’t a touristy place like it is now, but it exuded beauty and ugliness, regained freedom and new ways of expression which shaped my young mind.  

After spending most of their life in the USSR, my parents were hungry for the world. To them ‘freedom’ meant going wherever you want to go. So we spent our summers travelling to foreign cultures or moving home to different countries in Europe. The constant changing of my surroundings taught me to keep my mind open, to always trust my gut and to question what seems evident. 

Expanding my horizons is still my fuel. I love to learn and experience as much as I can and I tend to move on to new things once I feel I got the knack of it... a tendency that turned me into a Jacky Of All Trades. But graphic design somehow stuck with me over the years and it remains a precious skill in my life.

Although interested in almost every subject in high school, from biology to language analysis, I chose to follow my desire for aesthetics and studied Visual Arts. This turned out to be one of the most important decisions in my life, because I learned how to really pay attention to the world around me.

Creative projects provide the perfect context to make the most out of my main assets: a researcher's attitude and an associative mind.

I'm currently working as a freelance graphic designer in Belgium / teaching at Artevelde University of Applied Sciences / running a Belgian Waffle House in Mexico / finishing up a research project about creative entrepreneurship (www.decreatievestad.be)
