23 year-old student, currently pursuing my Master's Degree. Bachelor's in Nutrition & Dietetics, which is as far a subject as can be from what I was doing all twelve grades in Art School, previous to this.
Set up my personal blog in 2008, where I wrote all manner of things until I decided to discontinue it in 2012. To scratch my writing itch and combine it with my love of Trance music, I accepted an invitation to write for Vând Sunete, a music blog set up by a friend. All these years later, I'm still writing reviews over there, and on a similar publication, TranceMag, where I'm also in charge of editing and graphics creation.
Currently trying to go about creating comic strips, comic books and illustrations with a high school buddy of mine, under the very creative name 'Hoo Comics'.
Have been active on Neowin since about 2012, so when a post was put up requesting applications to write for the site, I jumped on the occasion. Since I'm pretty much the tech person in the house, I thought this would give me an opportunity to not only learn more about the ins and out of technology beyond what I already knew, but to basically give back to the community for being so welcoming all these years. The rest is pretty much (post) history.
