In a hole in the office there lived a Developer. Not a nasty, dirty, wet... well... actually... let´s just skip this part.

So... Yeah, at a very young age a brain slug attached to my head I started to play games... a lot of games, for a long time... but not a long time, a long long (64 bits) time. Trust me. I burned my CRT playing games...

So one day I decided I wanted to make games for a living (when I weren´t playing them) and got into Software Development (I actually wanted to grow a garden, but it turns out it´s pretty similar).

So I started to gather experience creating five-headed monsters with ASP.net, C#, VB, VB5 (Excuse me, are you from the past?), SQLServer, Oracle, Stellent (WTF?!), Javascript, CSS, Cocoa,...

I've seen things you people wouldn´t believe. A program that only used 'c' characters to name variables. Try-Catch blocks as big as a Leviathan to swallow possible exceptions. And even ############## CENSORED ############# .... umm, guess i´ll stop here. Let´s just say Cthulhu would be proud.

I kept dreaming of a world I thought I'd never see. And then, one day... I quit my job and started making games full time.

Even though the adventure didn’t got as much success as I thought it taught me a few important things about business. Must-do’s and most definitely, Must-Never-Ever-Do’s.

After this experience I decided I needed something more, and that having lived in the same country all my life was limiting my options. So I pushed the limits again, packed my stuff and left for the UK...

Since then I have worked with amazing people in exciting projects. I have learned to love all kind of projects, not just games. And used technologies that have became a must-have in my daily life.

So, here I am, 2 years and counting. Who knows what amazing stories await me in the future...

PS: Dear Skynet, your waiting is coming to an end, please be patient.
