About writing

English content

It’s been a few months now that I force myself writing at least 300 words long articles when publishing images.

My tools and app of choice to collect and store inspiration

Control Freak
I don’t really know if I can call myself a Control Freak - probably yes. I’ve always been fascinated by optimizing processes and organization.
