Who are you?

I’m a dreamer who believes wishes will come true if you really want them. I am food lover and I love to cook; I like traveling, meeting new people and my old friends; I love good music, books and films that challenge your imagination; I’m a dog, cat and sheep person; I love Italian and ice-cream in the night; the sound of rain when you’re falling asleep and falling asleep in the car; lemon and chocolate; mountains and water; brave, funny, uncomplicated, adventurous people; getting relax by watching F1 and Animal Planet; I love walking, listening and watching. I try to learn, understand, forgive, be quiet, refrain from getting angry and staying too long.

A word to define what kind of worker you are… 

I am a seeker, always trying to find new solutions. I work on my own, strict rules. I like order.

What tools are essential to your life (app, software, etc.)?

Instagram became the most important app in my life in the past several years. I met a lot of interesting people that contributed to my life and projects that made me happy. 

Lightroom software is just an absolute necessity in my profession. I can easily get by without all other apps or software.

What does your office space look like? 

Hmm, nothing interesting. Although I am a very collected and organized person, my table is the opposite of that. It is mostly full of stuff, real CHAOS. I like it. Thinking is much better that way.

Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work? 

I respect my time very much and I get angry when somebody doesn’t. Anyway, there is no magic rule for that. All I do is fulfill the tasks as they come. If you postpone it, you can be sure you will hardly make it.

What tips would you give to improve productivity? 

Spend a lot of time on resting and relaxing. I call it the Happy Hour. No matter how much work you have, dedicate an hour to doing something that what makes you happy, or nothing at all.

Comparing is destructive. I am always learning from others.

What is your routine start and end of the day? 

I get up earlier than needed. I like to spend 20 minutes sitting in my chair with a cup of tea, scrolling photos and news. Often at the end of the day, I come home from workouts and feel a pleasant fatigue. I have 1-2 hours to see what plans I have tomorrow, watch a movie or read my book, and then I go to sleep no later than 12 pm.

Aside from your computer and your phone, what gadget can you not go without? 

Only my camera. All other things can be removed. I still use the paper-based organizer, like to write on the papers and save all the notes on the small pieces of paper. Paper is a magic, especially the texture and the smell of the ink.
