    Italy - Last active: 1 day ago - Portfolio: 7

    Italian native speaker, based not too far from Venice, where I help tourists getting deeper lost in the street labirinth :-) I am Maths and Riddles enthusiast: I began solving Sudokus in preparation for the competition, and participated in the Italian championship that year. That changed my life: now I own my puzzle company and I enjoy sharing my games to other puzzles fans. I am best known for the introduction of Sudoku & Dragons. I have developed interest in many "nerdy" things, like Rubik's Cube: my personal best is 39''. You can learn it in one afternoon!

    Unique. Engaging. Vivid.

    United States - Last active: 7 days ago - Portfolio: 7

    An esteemed author once wrote, "Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass." That is a guiding principle for me. Whether I am writing or editing, I seek to paint words with vivid brushstrokes, tapping into ideas through images; feelings through sensations; facts through well-mined research. Once I start a project, my focus goes to striking interesting notes of expression within a given equation. Website: www.limilines.com
