I started to “carefully listen” to music around 8 years old, studying in depth vinyls of staple names such as Pink Floyd, Electric Light Orchestra and Chris de Burgh.
I quickly picked up a crappy classical guitar and learned some pop-rock songs by myself.
Just before getting into the Lindy Hop I picked up the alto saxophone, but practice time quickly faded due to dance classes. It’s a dream that I intend to grab in the future.
I had never danced before starting Lindy in 2010. Not at home, not at the disco, nowhere. But the swimming and karate years shaped the biomechanics perception of my own body. The study of biomedical engineering, with its components of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, pathology, etc., gave me a good functional notion of the human body.
Additionally, I did specific training and got certification (Certificate Sports Coach) in the area of fitness.
Master’s in Biomedical Engineering IST/FML.
