I have worked on a variety of projects over the past decade, mostly as a graphic designer and have been freelancing for roughly four years. I started out my career working at a boutique advertising agency where I had the opportunity to work with both national and international clients including Yamaha motors and Kraft foods. More recently I worked as a remote collaborator for Open Source Ecology where I contributed a series of illustrations for several of the 50 machines that form part of the Global Village Construction Set. I have over 10 years experience sketching, using Illustrator and Photoshop. Aside from helping people materialize their ideas in a timely and professional manner, one of my main concerns is to to build a body of work I can be proud of.
- Quick Bio I was very interested in computers since I was a kid, I started my contact with them using a very old 386 IBM PC running MSDOS. When I was 12 years old I realized computers were not meant only for gaming, so I learned to program in Visual Basic and Borland C, since then, I keep on learning new programming languages one at a time and studying other fields like system administration, network protocols, graphic design, music production and web development. To resume my impressions after many years coding, I can say about me that I fall in love easily with any new challenge and keep working on it until becomes no more a challenge. - Education I finished elementary and secondary school and found no interest on starting University, so I went for the choice of educating myself using books, manuals, papers and practice. This way has given me many success and also many rejections by former potential employers. As I consider myself a honest person, I will not try to impress you with a list of educational centers and dates, but I’m glad to provide you a list of my skills in several fields. - Professional Experience I was working in many different jobs (from construction to commercial) since I’m 17 years old, and started to work professionally with computers at the age of 21. My first job was in a marketing and advertising agency as a graphic designer and web developer. After 1 year working there, I moved to a pure web development company and my main task was to recode a very old CMS system. After almost two years, I moved to Germany and I was hired by a company that works very close to the Swiss tourism web marketing team. My main task here consisted in administering more than 50 virtual machines in amazon ec2 cloud, aside with hundred of web services. Eventually I did backend and frontend development and migrations of ~2GB of relational data to a MongoDB replica set. - Objective I’ve just started my career as a freelance, currently looking for customers that are not afraid of taking technology risks but understand what controlled evolution is, that do not live in a fantasy bubble where technology progress does not exists and are always willing for a better system or product. Those who give me enough freedom to innovate, but surround me with domain knowledge in order to create together nothing less than tailor-made solutions. If you are this kind of customer, we are already in the same wave, and I will be glad to get immediately in contact with you for pushing that project as far as it deserves. -

I have good understanding of engineering process and have sharpened my programming skills in various languages, but for now I`m most "at home" when developing in C, C++ an Python programming languages, but if needed I can quickly learn how to use any new tool. Also worth mentioning is my good knowledge of Linux platforms. My interests are mainly in computer vision, robotics, signal processing and embedded systems, but I don`t shy away from general scripting for task automatization, image processing and various user application development. Currently I`m in senior year of college, studying telecommunication and informational technologies. You can see some of my projects listed in portfolio section.
