Three years working as a Database Administrator at a bank led me to a pont where I needed to make a tough decision. I needed something more meaningful and fulfilling so I decided to quit and become a designer. Best decision I have ever made without a regret.
As cliche as it sounds, I also learnt that no knowledge is truly lost. My background in IT gives me the ability to communicate effectively with developers and balance my creativity with feasibility.

My genre has evolved over the years. I currently listen to very calm and relaxing music.
