Very perfectionist ... very creative ... and very, very restless. I live from the imagination, so I can bring different ideas and points of view. I love drawing and anything that deals with design, frustrated artist. Curious about everything ancient and a lover of Egyptology for as long as I can remember; Egypt marked on my skin. Although I am not a historian, Red Historia gives me the opportunity to share this passion and to make you feel the same concern that I feel.
