I started writing poetry when I was six years old. My mother would leave blank greeting cards on my bed, which I would later fill in with poems dedicated to family members and loved ones on special occasions. After honing my skills as the hallmark of the family, I began composing written pieces inspired by life. These poems were published in my collections of poetry Beyond Insanity (2005) and Spiel di mi Alma (2010).
I began to explore the art of prose while completing my minor in English Literature. After some of my short-stories were published in international journals, I decided to accumulate the pieces and include new poetry to create my third book TITLE (2016)—a collection of short stories, poems and thoughts. Most recently, I co-authored a multilingual children’s book entitled Hearty (2018). Next to my own publications, I continue to collaborate with artists, companies and organizations to create content-based pieces through my company illest content development.
My work usually explores topics and aspects of life I do not understand. Meditation and sporadic moments of zero state bring about inspiration clarifying the blur. By receiving inspiration to subsequently produce, I educate myself. This is the reason I always say it is my inspiration that inspires me. With every work of art, I become more curious as to what the truth of the following moment will become. By refraining myself from fanatical closure, I practice flexibility. The goal of course is to transform sporadic inspiration into sustained awareness.
My brain holds a BA in psychology and a minor in English Literature from Webster University and an MSc in Social and Organizational Psychology from Leiden University. My body is 32 years old and my soul enjoys drinking green iced tea, listening to music (any kind except the ones that make my head hurt), travel (anywhere except where it’s cold), hold discussions (about anything except things that I understand) and eat (anything except spicy food). Getting anything for free makes me unreasonably happy, my mother and I are trying to rectify this matter.
