My name is Luisa Alves do Amaral Ramos, 25 years old, born on the 2nd of March, 1995, in Brazil, my current place residence. I have also lived in the city of Leicester, UK, where I attended De Montfort University for a year (2015-2016). I’m an Architect, also working as a private English tutor, and pursuing further studies in Architectural Theory, Linguistics, Phenomenology, Stage Design and New Media/Fandom Studies, while trying to learn Korean and improve my German. I live with my parents and a talented (and tall) younger sister.
I am madly in love with Jesus and the Gospel, and with the world that my Father, the Architect of the Universe, has designed. I love adjectives and adverbs, overthinking, and crafting intricate metaphors. My taste in music is how I read and process all that surrounds me; music is the language I use to communicate with Heaven and with myself. I love punk rock, weird emo dance tunes, gentle indie folk, bright future funk, catchy city pop and loads of K-pop. You can check one of my 200+ public playlists on Spotify.
My biggest influences as a writer are Edgar Allan Poe, Charles Baudelaire, Daniel Handler, Neil Gaiman and C.S. Lewis. My biggest aesthetic influences are Brett Hellquist, Edward Gorey, Gustave Doré and Dave McKean. My favourite artist is Vincent [van Gogh], my favourite book is All That Is Solid Melts Into Air by Marshall Berman, and my favourite poem is Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan Poe. I love Doctor Who and Sherlock, and my favourite movies are Spirited Away, Pride and Prejudice and Reservoir Dogs. My favourite song ever will always be Blackbird, but Foster the People’s Nevermind is a close second. They’re my favourite band, next to Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age. I don’t believe in stanning but, if you ask me… Stan SHINee, NCT, and LOONA. You can follow me on Twitter and keep up with my daily updates on the Gospel of Jesus Christ, world politics, fandom shenanigans and K-pop, as well as my random thoughts.
