The New Kid Around! Get to Know Him (He Knows How to Bake Great Pizza!)

in introduceyourself •  6 months ago


Hello! If you're reading these words you'd probably like to know a little more about me, wouldn't you? You've done your part and now it's my turn. Microphone in hand and the reflector pointing at me...

I guess I could start by saying the things we all say when we introduce ourselves. Honesty has always been my best policy so I might say a little more.

Who am I?

My name is Diego Ávila Muskus, I am 23 years old and I was born in the capital of Venezuela, Caracas (better known as La Sultana del Ávila). I have a head full of dreams, a loving heart and a spirit eager to know what lies beyond my gaze, the horizon and the earthly plane itself.

I studied Biology at the Simón Bolívar University (USB) for a year, then I moved to the Central University of Venezuela where I studied Biology for 3 years. I have always loved nature, animals and plants alike, I have always found myself with eyes wide open in awe when I discover how everything around us works. With tastes like that someone could study Biology and feel like a fish in the water, right?


Yes, I love nature, but I learned that I can't be a scientist. It's just not my thing. I was aimless for a while. I studied and worked as a pastry chef at the Gran Meliá Caracas (a prestigious hotel located relatively close to Caracas's downtown). I learned how to manage the airline reservation systems and sold airline tickets. I traveled to Merida (many times). I started exercising more. I found a job as a marketing analyst (I still have that job) and started a journey as a freelance writer at Fiverr and there, working together with a friend, I discovered the first stretches of my way.

“... Open a vein and bleed.”

That must be my new favorite quote:

Writing is easy, you just open a vein and bleed

I know I lack many things to call myself a consecrated writer, however, I look for ways to learn more, improve and polish my skills (recommendations are always welcome). I started reading a lot more (I'm currently reading Crime and Punishment by Fiodor Dostoyevski) and decided to open my Steemit account to use as a kind of blog (they say the writers' gym is a blog).


This is what my dossier would say.

  • Favorite bands: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Portugal. The Man, El Cuarteto De Nos (honorable mention to Hans Zimmer, Yanni and Jack Johnson).
  • Solar sign: Aquarius; lunar: Leo; ascendant: Cancer.
  • Favorite food: ALL! But pizza and arepa are strong contenders.
  • Hobbies: Exercise, video games, photography, music and contact with nature.
  • Favorite movies: Moonrise Kingdom, Forrest Gump, Filth, Inglourious Basterds, Allied.
  • Soon to live in Germany, time to open my wings and fly. (work in progress).
  • Greatest desires: Freedom and plenitude.
  • Usually appears on social media as "Deigo".
  • Plays: piano (not really), bass, drums and guitar.

Many thanks to @vicokiwi for being the one who convinced me to open my account (you’re awesome!). Feel free to follow me on social media.
