HOW IT ALL STARTED
The story of the release of my investigative mindset started at an early age with sourcing my grandma’s drawers in the search for her youth’s glam.
More seriously, it started with studying philosophy to enter the Communication and Public Relations University. At the time, I didn’t understand why I had to know about the Platons, Wittenbergs, Sartres and Descartes but later on I realized philosophy is essential for what I am today.
Philosophy taught me to ask many questions (mostly whys), not to be satisfied with what one can clearly see with his eyes but dive in to search for what lies below the water level.
Allured by semiotics since the early days of university, I learned to quietly and carefully observe the goings on around me, to search for symbols and significances.
These skills essentially make up my work today as a trend researcher&analyst and writer and how I walk through this world.
