I graduated in Theatre Arts at Goldsmiths University, London, in 2010. In 2011, I was admitted into the school of Dramatic Arts Jacques Lecoq in Paris, which I attended for a year. During my studies I took a lot of bad habits, luckily I have not lost one of those few good I had: writing. In addition to writing novels, short stories and stories for the stage, I like to draw with the pen Pitt, paintings with acrylic paint, make collages, directing plays, interpret them (sometimes), jazz dance, watch other people dancing the jazz and invent crossword (although that still have never failed, I suspect there is a need for a computer).
