Drawing was one of my hobby when I was a kid and I was quite good storyteller. Some point later as an adult Storytelling turns to copywriting. Then I started to draw more concepts, graphic design, this and that. Web. After 15 years of entrepreneurship I count myself generalist designer. Brands, companies, products, services, both physical and digital. With passion to make an impact. About that image, I used to work with international beer brands for years. Beer is still close to my heart.

I have lived all my life following the rule that I learned as a kid. What ever you do,
be curious and keep learning. Take big bites, go beyond and if you need to fail. Fail trying, rather than fail to try.
And think bigger. If your dreams doesn’t scare the shit out of you, you’re not dreaming big enough. Be bold, be fearless.
