I am half Spanish, half English, and I lived in Iceland for five months. I don't like soggy bread and I really love roast dinners and tea. By day I try to be a creative copywriter, visual poet and voice over artist but most of the time it's just me juggling my life around. When I was little, I was told not to talk to strangers but now It has become my favorite hobby.
