I’ve had exposure to many different styles of projects for a range of companies based all over the world including Australia, Brazil, UAE, Angola, UK, Canada and USA.
I'm designer 24/7 and I've my head buzzing all the time. That's why I always have a paper handy to jot down ideas that come to my mind in the most unlikely moments like in the shower, at lunch, on the bus or in my dreams.
