Rui Filipe Rodrigues Vaz was born in Porto, Portugal in 1984.
From young age, he has been curious about stars and animals, death and the meaning of life. As he grew, his curiosity drove him to learn many different subjects from areas as contrasting as religion and science.
During his adolescence, he learned to play the drums, sparred with poetry, and was an amateur actor while earning a degree in Psychology, which he completed in 2007, the same year he began writing Visions of Gaea.
Today, he studies Applied Physics in Faculdade de Ciências do Porto and continues to write Visions of Gaea. His only wish is that he never ceases to see the Universe with the inquisitive passion of a child, or to be amazed with life and death, Science and God.
He currently resides in Porto, which curiously, is a city next to Gaia.
