My self-summary
“Untrained layman, underachiever and all-around procrastinator” is what i usually write on every fresh-started profile. I think every branch of human knowledge deserves a look so I tend to know next to nothing, but on a quite wide range of topics.
What I’m doing with my life
I’m a slightly colorblind graphic designer (colours are generally over-rated anyway) with a thing for typography living in Modena, Italy.
I have a conflictual relationship with photography as a medium of expression I’m trying to solve. Update: Apparently the conflict is on its way to be solved, I just finished a course on B&W printing and with a friend we’re setting up our own darkrom.
I’m really good at
Making shit shine. Which, in the words of my cousin means that I can find a good side in pretty much everything, from people to situations. She also said that sometimes i’m polite to the point that it turns around and i look like an asshole.
I’m also good at what I do for a living, which is graphic design. Not styling, mind you. As Bruno Munari put it “Le soluzioni basilari e essenziali non passano mai di moda; il resto è styling”: basic and essential solutions are never outmoded; the rest is styling. Styling sometimes makes me unconfortable, but i try to approach it from a projectual point of view.
The first things people usually notice about me
«What are you thinking about?». Normally is because I get fixated on some useless detail I don’t think the world needs to know. Just ask my opinion on the matter and I’ll flood you with my nonsense.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A list of books, in no particular order:

Also, I enjoy reading about the history of the ancient Near East and the origins of writing systems.

Dexter and Boris (a satirical series depicting the backstage of a typical italian soap). I generally like good cinema but I’m not keeping a list of favourites movies. I’m in love with Sarah Silverman and her delicate sense of humour.

If you put my iTunes on random play you’re assured to find something you hate: I listen to every kind of music, from electronica to the occasional classic piece, to some obscure ethnomusicological recording. I’m interested in musical traditions from every corner of the globe and I dislike the label “world music”. Every now and then I find myself wondering why Gala Rizzatto virtually disappeared after Come Into My Life.
Here follows a list of some artist I’m listening quite regularly these days:

A more comprehensive list on

I really don’t like salt, when cooking my own food i use the least amount. I enjoy meat, but i find myself eating less and less of it. I love to try everything at least once, and the place i’m in strongly affects my “daringness” and perception of taste, ie. in Brasil i tried chicken hearts skewers (yum!), something i’m not sure i would have done here. I enjoy cooking even though i’m far from being grandmother-level… i’d like to have more time to hone my skills.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
No lists here, random thoughts are always running through my head.
When i was a child before bedtime i used to think about the concepts of infinity and eternal sleep until i scared the shit out of myself; sometimes I still do it.
I also spend a lot of time thinking about perception and self-perception.
On a typical Friday night I am
somewhere, doing something.
Apart from my regular commitments i don’t have “days” for doing things, it’s not a big deal wether someone feels like going out for clubs on monday or spending saturday night reading on the sofa.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once went to a Shakira concert… nuff said
You should message me if
you feel like it.

Oh, e si você é brasiliana o lusofona, porque só acabei um curso de Português :)
