My name is Valentin and I was born on June, 23.
Since I was born, I was obsessed with the number 23, even my birth month, June, is 2*3 = 6.
I used to be a big fan of Michael Jordan, he was wearing the number 23 and I had the same number when I played semi-pro basketball. My car’s number is 23 and when I met my future wife, the height difference between us is… 23 cm!
So, because I was born with a lot of health problems, I found my strength in the number 23 and I kept on going, no matter what my limitations were. I have a black belt in Ashihara Karate, I used to practice karate for almost 20 years, I had my own gym for almost 15 years and I’ve won a lot of championship titles and a 5th place in a World Championship Tournament.
I started to dance salsa in 2007 and I am still dancing, because meanwhile I opened my own dancing school and I teach since 2008. I also have a lot of championship titles in Salsa and Bachata and I was rated top 10 in the world in 2010 and 2011 in World Latin Dance Cup in SUA, where I competed for both Salsa and Bachata competitions.
Even if I have changed a lot of sports, the only constant thing in my life was the design and I am doing it for almost 20 years.
I have always loved all forms of arts and I tried to learn by myself drawing, painting, photography and webdesign and I have worked as a freelancer for many years.
I am a very straight-forward person, I love to learn new things all the time and to use my imagination in all the parts of my life. I have 2 babies, a cat and a dog 🙂
Work like a slave, command like a king, create like a god
