Ever since I was a little boy
i've loved to draw on things and in
kindergarten when the other kids
were making circles and squares,
I was drawing houses in perspective.
Drawing led to modifying my toys and creating small inventions
When I was 9 I made a
painted cardboard bear
mask that a friend of
mine liked so much,
he made his parents
buy it from me for $4
When I was 11 I invented
a tiny microscope made
from a small deodorant
container, some wire and
glue using a droplet of water
as a lens
ALAN THE GUITAR PLAYER
Some years went by and I fell in love with music. In school, I worked
with my older brother and a couple of friends to start a rock band named
Lotus. I was the lead guitar.
I HATED MY FIRST JOB
Local concerts and more years went by, and when the band members
started chasing their grown-up dreams, I found myself working in a
multinational, spending my days talking with clients about their internet connection problems.
I hated doing that
so to relax I started
to draw on my phone ...
... My desk phone !
REVENGE OF THE GREEN DESIGNER...
So after more than 16 years, my love for drawing
started to surface again.
About then I became a vegetarian
and when my friends (the meat eaters)
saw my drawing skills they pushed me
to do something about it
AND I DID !
I QUIT MY JOB !
I quit my job the next day and started web design, print design and video animation.
IT WAS ALL AWESOME...
I didn’t feel the joy of drawing like I had when I was a kid...
I didn’t feel that I was creating something from scratch...
But in 2009 all that changed when I first
saw the iPhone and I met Steve Jobs...
...in a keynote
I bought one immediately and it was so beautiful that I wanted to lick it !
THE REST IS HISTORY
