I love learning new things!
Favorite things to do: Surfing the internet!
That's how I recognize new innovations in the world:
through videos, news, articles, etc.
I wouldn't say that I'm a hardcore reader because I'm more like a visual learner, and that's how I get inspiration from. Also, hearing different stories from people from different background always interest me because not only you get to know the person, but also the way they think.
I also love to spend my time drawing on my iPad and
geeking out at comic conventions like Comic-Con, WonderCon, etc.
Growing up surrounded by arts, studio classes, apron with lots of paints, museum trips, makes me realize that life will take you to a surprise once you start exploring other paths, and that's how I discover my path on UX.
It's a challenging path, but I'm a fast learner! :)
