About Me




I still have not managed to convince my parents that working with videogames is a real occupation; the fact that I am also a professor at University makes it easier for them to understand how I earn a living. But I'm very skeptical about this whole "earn a living" thing, I'd much rather "live an earning"


diving, reading, breathing, walking, writing, swimming, painting, riding, skiing and cooking, but mostly breathing

Music, Movies & Books

Kubrik, Von Trier, Wes Anderson: their complete filmography could entertain me for months. Throw in the mix Murakami, Yoshimoto, Easton Ellis, Jon Fante, D'annunzio and Philip Dick and I can even do without food. Gogol Bordello, Lumsk, Nightwish, Pink Floyd, System of a Down, RHCP, Bach: now I can survive without drinking too! Ah, did I mention that I LOVE videogames? Journey, Deus Ex, Skyrim, Minecraft, Xcom and Fallout
