Imperative third/person "About" in a dramatic storytelling format.

Act I

Born under the sunnies skies of Caracas and raised under the roof a fully-fledged Italian ex-pat household, Marco learned the language of "prosciutto funghi" months before his first parental cry.

Early into his years of creative bliss, he used to spend hours on end imagining, doodling, and creating drawings of magnificent cockroaches—the very first signs of a visionary artist in the making. 

It is unknown to the date being where his curiosity for these tiny, arguably disgusting creatures arose from. Yet the archival evidence remains to be studied.

Early into his years of creative bliss, he used to spend hours on end imagining, doodling, and creating drawings of magnificent cockroaches. The first signs of a potential artist on the rise. 

It is unknown to the date being where his curiosity for these tiny, arguably disgusting creatures arose from—yet the archival evidence remains to be studied. 

Act II

Moving onto the forever turbulent teenage years, Marco found himself lost at purpose.

Art seemed to have escaped his hands, and without a creative muse to guide the way he took on the daunting mission of conquering business school. A single stroke of genius. 

Needless to say, artists and numbers mix like communists at Disneyland. Oh wait, does do mix...carrying on.

Business school was short-lived but in the meantime, Marco accidentally stumbled upon a set of tools that would, later on, change his life: The Adobe Suite.

Act III

In between assignments and mathematical formulas that looked kind of like this: sin(2x) = 2sin(x) • cos(x) = [2tan x/(1+tan2 x) = wtf], he taught himself the very basics  of graphic design and landed his first small gigs on 99designs.

This seemingly insignificant yet powerful creative sparks lit up a dormant engine. It was at that point in time when Marco decided to drop off school and pursue graphic design for a career.

A couple of years, truckloads of coffee, unsalted eggs, and tuna-pasta later, his skillset branched to cover diverse areas of graphic design, and like a jazzist to his solo it all resolved in a beautiful "uncomplicated" lick. Or that he wished.

Fortunately, he also learned how to cook.
