A short monologue…

I like to think that things are possible, specially when most people don’t. The higher the skepticism, the bigger the opportunity. I tried to be a sheep but my shepherds (teachers) showed me I would be better off being me.

I managed to get straight As during my first semester at school, but if I had continued doing that, I would not have had time to finish half of the DIY projects that I am proud of today. I am very comfortable trying new ideas and this is my time to do that.

My native language is Brazilian Portuguese, but over the years I became very familiar with English, and maybe even more importantly, Java and C#. Learning new languages is a very effective way to better understand and interact with the world (computers and people). Every one should try.

As you can see, even my email is a bit different… rodrigo@mastria.com.br
