  • After struggling for 14 years in a lot of underrated jobs for, in 2007 I arrived in the advertising world without any knowledge about its idiosyncrasies, and I think that was the main reason that kept myself näive, dumb and unaware enough to create my own agency just 3 years after my firs job as content analyst

  • The last 8 years were the best school of business and human relations I could ever imagine or afford, and it shaped myself to become a leader that is a hard believer that the true revolution demands new ways of thinking and doing through the perspectives of those people the advertising agencies and marketing departments insists to marginalize in a shut-up-and-consume-only loop of empty concepts and promises
