Career Summary

I am a 38 year old Brazilian guy, born in a town called Ribeirão Preto, in the state of São Paulo.

I started working at the age of 12, as a part time delivery boy, and since then, I have had some interesting jobs, like waiter and glazier.

I owned my first computer in 1996, where I started playing with MS Paint and MS Office.
After a few months, I started earning some money by teaching people on how to use Windows and MS Office.

In 1998 I started working as a web designer, using MS Frontpage and Macromedia Flash, and later on, I found a job as a web designer / ASP developer.

In 2000 I was reasonably familiar with ASP and Visual Basic components, and at the age of 21, I moved to the city of São Paulo, which later on lead me to learn Java, developing web applications for banks and insurance companies.

By 2011, still working as a Java developer, I started to notice that I was spending half of the time coding Javascript, as many web applications became popular. jQuery was a very trendy technology at that time, and it fascinated me how those crazy callback functions could achieve such cool results. 2011 was also the year when NodeJS started to get popular, so I became very interested in advanced Javascript.

After dedicating the past 5 years working with Javascript, I was hired by a German company in Berlin, where I now live and work as a Javascript developer.
