6 Inspirational Videos That Will Make You Want to Take an Adventure in Cape Town
A swashbuckling word-nerd and life-time student of the creative edge, Alessandro spends his time cooking up funky stories and getting his teeth kicked out at Thai Boxing. His geekiness comes in useful where he gets put to work fashioning digital content that sizzles. When not searching for the perfect metaphor, Alessandro hunts for the quirky, the arresting and the powerful, since following Dr Seuss’ maxim you gotta:
