I was born on the 16th of May, 1983, and my fate was set: I was born to be the person with the least drawing skills on earth, maybe even the Universe - I actually do believe there is intelligent life out there somewhere, which makes matters even worse.

Despite the unfavourable odds, with a great deal of work and perhaps a little luck, I managed to trick not only my lack of talent for drawing, but also several advertising agencies along the way (McCann, JWT, Lowe & Partners, STRAT, BAR - in Portugal; Bassat Ogilvy and Proximity BBDO - in Spain; Jung von Matt, DDB - in Germany) and become a Senior Creative and Art Director.

During this unbelievable journey for such an untalented person, I went further and managed to trick quite a few ad peers and scoop awards at festivals like Cannes Lions, El Sol, ADC Germany, Eurobest. On top of that, I even tricked the 100.000+ people who downloaded my Hipstelvetica typeface.

That's a lot of people to trick, which at least shows I'm talented at something.
