Bio


I'm a generalist. I create and learn new things everyday, going from graphic designer to editor to web designer and developer is just what I do for fun. Do what you love, love what you do.

Work


Founder of Designn, Editor-in-Chief of Designn Magazine and Co-Founder of Soosci.

An idea worth spreading


Today the world in moving forward in every aspect - technology, business, education, healthcare - but what about creativity? Tests (Such as Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking) have shown that over the decades our IQ scores have kept growing, but has shown a decline in creative thinking. In other words, we are smarter, yet less equipped to find novel approaches to problems.

So back in 2011 I started a project called Designn (www.designn.org) whose goal is to educate about, inform about and spread creativity worldwide by offering various free services to the community - for example Publishing free digital magazines, creating creative blogs, funding free resources, spreading creativity through social media, promoting arts and crafts, and so on.

I'm passionate about


Studying medicine, spreading creativity, making art, developing new technologies and solutions through creative thinking.

Areas of Expertise
Web & Design, Community & Youth Work, Foundations

ANGELICA-LILY :devAnge
  How Do I Declare My Feelings?The way your body crushes
Against me so intimately -
Chest to chest, groin to groin -
Makes me feel so giddy; it's like
I'm relearning how to breathe.
It feels like I'm suffocating
When at the same time I'm not; all
These sensations, marvelous and
Exciting, sends me into shock;
I dance upon invisible electricity.
This is my personal definition of
The phrase passionate living.
This is a mere tribute that greatly
Celebrates the wonder of the cosmos.
But most of all...
This is my declaration, one that is
Born from genuine heartfelt words.
I owe it all to you, my other half.
