I have been building and architecting software systems with .NET for the last 12 years. Before becoming a computer geek, I studied solid-state physics and could have been one of those crazy scientists. Eventually got into programming and never looked back. My first computer was an Intel 80386 PC with no hard-drive, and I still vividly remember configuring extended memory in MS-DOS in order to start a game, or bringing Doom II to my classmates on a bunch of floppy disks.
When not programming at work, I am… programming for fun (what did you expect from a geek?), learning new technologies, and writing about it here. Occasionally though, I also play the guitar and produce electronic music.
