I studied Law and have been a practising lawyer for a good five years. In the meantime and since 2006 I started blogging about trends and new business ideas, just for fun. I also qualified to receive Air Traffic Control instruction after a few years as a lawyer. I completed it, but it just wasn't for me. One big truth is that I have always been attached to a computer since I was 10, trying and learning things myself. That was how I got to do some jobs here and there as an amateur web designer.
Then one day I needed a change and a break, and I moved to Canada for a year. In Vancouver I decided I want to be a web programmer, and do something serious with my blogging skills because I think doing something serious about your passion is always a wise decission.
I love socializing because I observe the world around me a lot, and I read too much sometimes. For some reason I just can't match Hollywood actors and actresses faces to their names (few exceptions made), and I feel the only language I could never learn is fashion . I can remember lots of things and have a very active mind, but I have to admit that sometimes I wear underwear and T-shirts inside out just by accident, and by the time I realize I'm probably walking down the street (or at the office for a few hours).
I don't take myself too seriously, I think it sounds and looks ridicolous to and in everybody.
