About @omnicogni

45 years old • Male • Biologist and Illustrator

I used to be the fat kid with asthma, reading while all the others played football. I grew into a long haired teenager, in love with nature, metaphysics and grunge rock. Now, I am still a dreamer. I want to be a scientist dividing his time between all the beautiful small places that still exist in my country and the rest of the unspoiled world.

  • Hobbies:

    Diving and freediving (and, if the fish is plenty, spear fishing), surfing, birdwatching, trekking, playing guitar, writing, drawing, painting and keeping lists of everything... I also love music, toons, movies and travel books. Nowadays my pc is an essential, except if I am travelling. I have occasionally done some horse riding and climbing. In the past, I practised yoga and tried a handfull of martial arts: capoeira, aikido, kung fu and taekwondo, although I sucked at it.

  • Favourite places:

    Southwest Portugal, S. Jorge Island (Azores - Portugal), Marrakesh (Morocco), Pantanal (Brazil), PN Nahuel Huapui (Argentina), PN Chiloé (Chile), Picos de Europa (Spain) ...

  • Elsewhere:
If the problem can be solved, why worry? And if it can not , why worry either?
