Who am I?

My full name is Ian Albuquerque Raymundo da Silva. I was born in 1995 and I currently work as an independent game designer, software engineer, and pixel artist under the name Ian Mandarini.

Mandarini was my great-grandmother’s last name. I loved it since I was a child because it sounds beautiful. Unfortunately, it was not passed down to me, which is why I have chosen it as my game developer name.

A true thing, poorly expressed, is a lie.
