“You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.”

Morpheus, The Matrix

I’m a simple and tremendously curious person. I studied Physics just for fun. I really enjoy learning about the only universe I’ll ever life on. I was most interested in Solid State Physics and Statistical Mechanics, which led me into a PhD in Strongly Correlated Electrons.

I learned programming quite early in my life and I since then I’m always around computers. I integrated them to my research work by developing computer simulations. I currently work at a software company to develop high performance tools to monitoring IT infrastructure.

I have learned everything about computers online, and learning requires seeing how things are done. Free Software encompasses this philosophy very nicely. You share your work for others to learn about it and even better build upon it.

When I get a chance I got out to dance. I like West Coast Swing the most, and you can also find me dancing Salsa, Bachata and even Ballroom. Dancing is the most amazing recreation Art and Sport I have ever practiced. It is giving motion to emotion.
