Hello! My name's Gian-Luca. My mom's Africo-Puerto Rican, my dad's Japanese-Brazilian. I speak English, Spanish, and Portuguese fluently, but my Japanese is super rusty. I'm currently working on improving that, especially since I plan on going to graduate school in Japan (Tōkōdai, woot woot!). I'm currently in school, double majoring in Computer Sciences and Sustainability, and double minoring in Environmental studies and Architecture. Crazy, right? I know.

In any case, I love horses, tech, science, museums, coffee, wasabi peas, obscure, intellectual toys (Newton cradle, rubik's cubes, Maneki neko, and beer. Hello:)
