    I'm a guy that has tried different things in different moments in life; for example, I studied both programming and nursing education (0-2 years old children), and also spent a year studying music (musical language, electric guitar and singing). There are other subjects like writing and psychology in which I'm quite good despite being self-thaught, and I've done some other stuff like drawing a bit, but I haven't got too far with examples like this.

    About hobbies and that stuff, you could say that I'm an all-terrain nerd, or geek, or whatever you want to call it: I've always played videogames, later starting playing pencil and paper role-playing games, as well as tabletop games of all kinds (except wargames). I like or have liked manga and anime, comics of superheroes, and other kinds of comics like the ones from Jean Giraud as Moebius. Of course, I like fantasy and sci-fi settings, but I don't like neither Lord of the Rings nor Star Wars.

    About my gaming life, I stuck to some specific game series, not trying too many new ones because I expected the ones I was playing would eventually die and I would stop losing time with videogames, but, well, here I am, so... It didn't work. I've been able to leave some franchises behind, and some other died as planned, but it's impossible for me to completely quit Sonic, no matter how many mediocre or worse games they make (I try to avoid these ones, though).

    About how do I work, I must admit I'm quite a perfectionist, but not to the point of being a dick with people working with me unless they are objectively doing a really bad work or just goofing a lot; everyone can get mad about that if it happens, I suppose. The real bad thing about this perfectionism is it slows my work a lot, and I tend to point at others' faults easier than I do to their achievements, just because I'm like that with my own results.

    I also have some talent to handle complex things easily, but mess all up with simpler things. I usually start from a basic concept, add all kinds of complexity to cover every point and control every situation, then start to cut everything not really needed or take another look to the concept root, until I finally leave just the required complexity to make it work great. It's a long road but, in the end, everything sums up in fantastic results that look like everything was that simple all the time.

    At this point, I should talk why I joined Retro, but I've changed a lot since I got here and I stay for different reasons now, and I'm not sure if my previous motives were anything more than wishful thinking anyway, so let's say I can't barely find anyone willing to talk about Sonic in other places the way we do here and I've come to like this community and stay around even if I'm not that much into Sonic now as I was before (still probably more than I should, though).
