I'm a software engineer with over 20 years of experience across many technologies and platforms. Most of my career has been devoted to provide consulting services either working with large agencies or on my own. This means I'm comfortable sitting across a new client and learning their business intimately in order to build the perfect solution. Over the last few years I also was able to taste entrepreneurship, which I find much more rewarding as it gives me the opportunity to participate in the entire lifecycle of an idea.
On the other hand as a Third Culture Kid, I've always been fascinated by global affairs, culture abroad, travel and our ability as humans to connect deeply in a global virtual context. Such fascination made me a blogger and continues to influence which projects I get involved in. I have always been an early adopter when it comes to online communication tools: blogs (serious Wordpress skills), twitter, tumblr, etc.
Technically speaking, I'm "old school". I was first trained as a sys-admin and spent many years programming sockets for VT100 using nothing but C. These days I'm most comfortable on a backend, either databases, infrastructure, servers, processes, but know enough of the overall stack to assemble full solutions. That being said, I believe that great solutions require great teams and consider myself above all a good technical architect, capable of envisioning a large solution and producing it by engaging specialists as needed.
