About me…

Computer Systems Engineer by profession, knowledge-seeker by heart, translator by passion. An important part of my life has been devoted to mediating, translating and extracting the truth from texts, whether from sacred books, webcomics or daily papers. My favorite music genre is jazz and 80-90's rock, especially South American bands.

SciFi and Internet have been a major influence in my life, and I've seen things you people wouldn't believe: Geocities blinking swarms dedicated to Asimov's prime novels. The times when Michelangelo, Natas and Y2K forced the world to take a serious look to the WWW. When Hotmail was a HoTMaiL. All these moments will be lost when I go offline.
