In 1992, I obtained an BA degree from the University of Portsmouth, where I defended my dissertation on recycling strategies. I started working as a teacher. I then discovered computers and taught myself how to code in ColdFusion. My first 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 of Jiboia for the maemo platform. I get to speak and do interviews too sometimes. My main extra-professional interests are Metareciclagem, Bricolabs and the spore we created in Manaus.
