Without one even realising it, there comes a time when all the work one has ever done in in one’s life is all over the web in no apparent order. Articles, columns, photos and travel logs are hidden away in old blogs, or in remote corners of a hard disc, or in media websites long since in disuse. My obsession with structure and order made me decide that the time had come to put all the pieces of this puzzle in one place. A site that would serve both as a letter of introduction and a personal archive. A space divided into clear categories that would satisfy my OCD.
That’s what this is all about. In this website there are articles dating back to the year 2000.Most of them were published in different media, while others only saw the light of day in some ancient virtual diary. The less fortunate never went beyond my computer. Until now.
