I'm 33 years old, I've been studying programming since I was 15, at the moment I'm finishing my studies on Informatic Engineering (I really didn't pay too much attention to the university) and working as a CTO on an important Startup on San Francisco, so if I do any freelance job, its just for fun.
In my past I worked for many importante companies, like Iplan (Teach Leader), Travelocity (UI Leader), Bobvila (Contributor), Norbauer (Consultant), etc.
I really know a lot of programming languages, like c, c++, perl, php, python, java, smalltalk, ruby, js, node.js, c#, asp.net, tcl/tk, lisp, prolog, haskell, erlang, elixir. The important thing is that I know structured programming, OOP and Functional paradigms very well. I've good skills with unix/windows/linux/bsd/osx as well, and great experience with db, although I left the big db tasks to DBAs.
Finally, I'm really good at solving puzzles and debugging issues, its one of my favourite task :)
