Other experience

Writing
I have experience writing texts of very different nature. Fiction literature has always interested me and I write in my spare time, but I've also worked as an editor for blog articles and chronicles for collaborative news portals, as well as essays for college.
Illustration
I have submitted fanart for some web platforms and participated with original art in several fanzines. I enjoy making visual concepts for stories (both mine and other's). I often use my drawing skills to make gifts within my inner circle and have made some concept art commissions for friends.
Animation
I've always felt admiration for 2D and 3D Animation. I got the chance to study it theoretically, practice it both in the traditional and digital way, and finally transmit my humble knowledge to new students.
Creativity
I find it easy to create and conceptualize new universes and characters, and usually do so without even noticing.
Organization and Planning
For me it's essential to find the best way to work without wasting time and tend to build automated routines to avoid repetitive work. I am also very keen on planning, which I find is a key part of teamwork.
Computers
I have knowledge in solving technical problems (computer assembly, formatting and registry cleaning, installation of operating systems, etc.).
Video games and board games
I've always enjoyed video games since I was a child, specially those of the RPG/JRPG and graphic adventure genre. I also often play board games, a frequent activity in my friend meetings. We have a couple of projects to build our own games.
Volunteering
I've rescued cats and managed a sort of cat colony in the past. Nowadays I contribute with my design skills to help the Felinos Lo Morant association. I do my bit via designs, publications and posters, so that their cats can find the right home. I've also been responsible of their charity calendars for 2021 and 2022 (photography, design and texts).
