  • The Secret History
    The Secret HistoryThe problem The Secret History is a book about a murder. The identity of the killers is not a secret; the reason is. The protagonist, Richard Papen, and the isolated group from Ancient Greek class in Hampden College, take you into a journey of self-discovery, myths and madness. Although the book is one of the most incredible pieces of literature I've had the pleasure of reading, the book covers are disappointing, so I decided to experiment and come up with my own interpretation.
  • Sky
    SkyHaving fun is key Working for the biggest advertiser in the country is at the same time a challenge and a pleasure. The job is very versatile and encouraged me to be proactive and interested in all the different things I created whilt there, from posters and doordrops to banners, e-mails, animations and ads for new advertising tools, like the Facebook Canvas. Because most of the projects are secret and ongoing, I can't display everything, but some of it might be available upon request.
