Born in September 11th, 1986 I discovered my passion for books reading through my mom’s library, at the age of 10. My first book was Agatha Christie’s “The Hollow”. After that I never stopped reading becoming soon a bookworm/bookaholic. I own countless books. And I’m always buying more. I read two or three at the same time too. I need to catch up, you know?
In High School I found myself in love with Poetry (basic Portuguese and Brazilian poets) and started writing more and more. Only sweet and passionate bad poetry, though.
Only recent, January 2011, that I decided to invest in it as a therapeutic process – I was suffering from a long depression episode that made me redo my entire life. Here we have the results of it. Since then I’ve come a long, long way. I met amazing writers among the WordPress community and I feel very supported by them – my real friends don’t care to read poetry. Nothing’s perfect, right?
In September 2012, I enrolled myself into a MOOC at University of Pennsylvania about Modern and Contemporary American Poetry. The experience was amazing and helped me to open my perception about poetry and the writing process in general. I’ve been doing lots of form experiences, if you care to read.
In real life I’m a former chef working in the organic coffee business in New Zealand! Yay!
