What are you up to right now? 

 Writing a new project which is a mix between a radio show and a web TV.

What kind of videos make you go wow

– The ones that speak about TRUE people in an original way.

What’s your signature steeze as a Video Curator? 

– If you can talk, you can sing, you can walk, you can dance!

Tell us about your experience at Stocktown

– I created a blog when I was living in Montreal. It was about Hip and Pop Culture, so I used to spend hours on the internet looking for some gems (videos, music, texts…) and naturally going from a website to another led me to Stocktown.

What are you doing when you’re not doing anything? 

– I’m always on the run, so I’m always looking for new things to appreciate and share. Whether I’m on the street taking pictures or just exploring a new bookshop. I have a serious problem with art books, I can’t help buying books. At home, I’m not so much into TV but I spend a lot of time on my laptop. As I said going from a website to another, discovering music on Soundcloud, trying to find inspiration by discovering new artists and last, but not least, trying to travel from my sofa to I don’t know, the periphery in Sao Paulo or a music Festival in Nairobi (this will be my next travel I think). So, this is pretty much me. Liz, lover of life, people and different cultures!
