I have a degree in Information Systems, and I love cinema, television and theater. I work, read a lot, study, go to cinemas, parks and run (exceeded the personal goal of 21km), and still I watch series, movies and read books and write about them for more than 10 years…
Yes, I don’t even know how I manage to organize my schedule in the midst of so much nerdiness.
