I'm a computer enthusiast for 22 years and a professional software developer with 14 years of experience.

I am well versed in exploring new technologies to assess their characteristics and the problems they pose in their adoption. While I forgot most of them during the years, I retain for most part their underlying principles and problems.

I am able to troubleshoot issues with the software/infrastructure I deal with, even with little/no previous context -- either by technical means or by involving/escalating to the right people.

I employ theory, experience and pragmatism to deliver software within the constraints given. This is not always easy, but each time I get a little bit better in understanding tradeoffs and learn from my mistakes.

I'm aware I have still room for improvement -- for this reason I practice new skills, revise known ones, keep up to date with trends, and take inspiration from apparently unrelated fields like psycology and economy.

The roles I fit best are Software Engineer and Software Engineer in Test (or equivalent roles). I would be interested in working on operating systems, compilers, developer tools, platforms, real-time/embedded systems and videogames.
