Yet another artist stuck in the body of an IT professional. Books, dark humor and twisted stories. My life revolves around it. Some say I am blunt and some even agree that I am the fakest real person they have ever met. Lazy to a level that it's hard for me to choose an appropriate emoji😬. Loving and exploring the unexplored side of Cinema. And wanting people to watch through my eyes.
