I like to think critically
I like to make visuals that will make people think critically 
Whilst living I come across all sorts of fascinating issues. I like to explore those issues to the very scary depths of them. When I completely absorbed the theme I try to create something that will start thought, discussion or conversation about this very issue, and that something can be in all sorts of forms. Games, ceramics, paintings, illustrations, whatever medium fits best will do. That's why my portfolio and resume are filled with projects in various areas, in various autonomy and various media. 
I'm a multidisciplinary artist, I'm a critical thinker and I'm a broadly skilled crafts(wo)man. 
If this is way to abstract and you are in need of a more specified description, see my resume below
