Back in the day I started working as a teacher. I then discovered computers and taught myself how to code in Cold Fusion. My first IT contract was at the BBC in London in 2000 and was a disaster. The masochistic side of me kept pushing me on to more contracts and then I found Free Software and Unix, and everything changed. I've been working on both ever since. I've contributed to various free software projects, and I am currently an active developer for the maemo and UME platforms. I get to speak and do interviews too sometimes.
I love 'mobile' things and I live on a floating house on the Rio Negro in Amazonas
