Over 17 years of professional experience in software development, technology support, and graphic arts.

Hey! I'm a beer snob. Well, not a snob, but a beer knows-what-he's-talking about (who wants to be a snob?). I think they call it a Zythologist- someone who studies beer. I think that's fair to say; beer is a passion of mine, and I know a great deal about it. Brewing it, tasting it, writing about it... The blog - benlikesbeer.blogspot.com - is really where I developed my beer legacy. I write a few times a month about "beerducation," seeking to educate people about the culture of beer, and how to appreciate it more. I am currently a Senior Marketing specialist, and maintain Ben Likes Beer on the side. I recently passed 40 posts and over 17,000 views (and counting). What's more, I have interest in combining this passion with my degree - a BA in Digital Media - meaning App Developments, 3D media, and games (if you get creative). Well, that's about it from me. I genuinely appreciate the interest, and I hope to hear from you soon.

I'm a Software Architect of the biggest credit union bank of Brazil. I work and define solutions from the desktop application (view) to the database. Worked before in other big bank (government) and developed and defined solutions for credit loans and lottery. For me, you do not have to know technologies. Instead, know how to solve problems. You can make the same solutions in several technologies. But you can make the solution only knowing the technology? In my career, I always completed what was asked me. And trying hard to make with high quality.
