About me

Hello, I am Marta and I am tall. I have been to more countries than my age, I have done the highest bungee jump in the world, took a train across China and I have a big collection of magazines and movies. I love movies, magazines and everything that has the creative magic. If I could be portrayed by a photographer I would ask Sonia Szostak. If I was a movie character I would be written by either Jean-Pierre Jeunet or Damien Chazelle and coloured by Sofia Coppola. If I worked with you I would work very hard. I am a junior creative director and producer very enthusiastic about starting new, challenging projects. And about telling stories. There are 7,5 billion people and way more stories. It would be nice to tell at least some together.
