I was diagnosed as dyslexic at age twelve by psychologists.

Same old story: smart kid who does terribly in school. I almost failed several times needing all the resources and “low blows” to finish high school. I managed to overcome many of the reading and writing difficulties, but even today my memory for any type of number is zero, be it dates, passwords, values, etc.

Drawing was my escape as a child and lifeline as an adult. I was a newspaper illustrator, art editor, video clip director and currently my main occupation is designing alphabets and icons. I also design to a weekly animated opinion column in the Meio newsletter.

Dyslexia helps me to see the connections between words, images and concepts in the midst of the crazy mix of words, images and concepts that come from inside my head.
