Me and my daughters at age 6, sitting on our living room couch.

Hi, I’m Shell.

I am middle-aged a Brazilian Architect turned graphic and web designer and mother who has been living in Canada since 2015. What a mundane description.

When I was young, I thought I would hate getting older. But, as time went by, I realized that – other than the eminent certain death thing – being older was actually quite relaxing. I don’t care about 95% of the stuff that used to bother me as a kid and I don’t have to ask my parents for money. Life is good! Wrinkled, but good.

I feel like I haven’t changed much since I was 10. I am still capable of watching 7 movies in a row with my mom and I am trying my best to teach this amazing skill to the next generation while maintaining reasonable screen times.

As a cliché Gemini, I love to talk, talk, talk, talk and also creating websites. I have been doing it since high school, (websites, that is). My first one was a Hanson site in 1998 hosted at Geocities and from there I just kept on collecting domains. Most people did not get that reference, but my friend Leandro did and I am mostly writing this for him.

So, thank you for stopping by, I guess.

Please, no hate here. I mean… I really can’t handle it so just DON’T.
