As a student, I hated writing and having to make up stories. Ten years later, I started enjoying it. Since then, I have published several offline articles before moving to the online space, contributing to major websites such as Softpedia, Brothersoft and Download3000 that are still online as of 2021, but multiple blogs that have disappeared. I also wrote an article on Over the years. I’ve been in his Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and have no plans to quit anytime soon. I love good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sounds, but also smartphones, streaming services and digital art.
