What does your office space look like? 

Boring. Not inspiring at all. I haven't paid considerable amounts of attention to my place.

What tips would you give to improve productivity? 

I could tell you a lot of tips, but I have broken them all. Deadlines? I've already broken this one.

What is your routine start and end of the day? 

I wake up and I have a cup of tea. Then I spend the first hour of my day just browsing on the internet. Some days, I'll cook with my partner before she leaves for her work. The end of my days usually happens with some Japanese animated series, watching an interview or at the moment that my eyes suddenly stop to follow my hand at work.

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

I really do not rely on things like that. I can go without the computer and the phone as well. We can always find different ways of living.

Cafe Brasilero. Beautiful old place. Although, I can't drink coffee these days anymore.
