Interests and Characteristics
I'm a writer and translator, therefore language is my trade. I'm deeply interested in literature (fiction and non-fiction), and videogames. I'm currently doing scientific research on the intersections of videogames and phenomenology, a subfield of philosophy. I'm interested in all genres of writing and videogame, with a strong preference for formally different experiences (Cortázar is one of my favorite writers). I'm also an amateur religious student, but through a skeptical and scientific frame of mind.
