- A software developer.
- I see this career as a translator between human-think and machine-think. This is becoming a more challenging task as time goes on. Even though both sides have been learning a lot about each other since I started this career, I still think the gap is becoming wider rather than narrower.
- My language of choice is Python. But I know at least 10 others that I prefer not to mention to avoid LinkedIn spam.
- I'm slowly learning data science and machine learning, but I still spend most of my time in mundane back-end development & trivial server architecture design.
- A Spiritist and an active medium in a Spiritist Centre.
- You can find free magnetic healing, spiritual counseling, and other services in your closest Spiritist Center. If they charge for it, it's not a Spiritist Center (this disclaimer is important because that category in Google Maps is egregiously spammed here in North America). I recommend picking a location from your local Spiritist Council website (US, Canada).
- I don't exercise my mediumship publicly.
- If you happen to ask for help in the centre I volunteer at, and depending on your case, I might be involved in helping you, in a mutually anonymous way. We won't be in the same building during the activities, or interact in any currently-measurable way. That helps our group do our best work within our methodology, plus, Mt 6:3.
- I also volunteer there in other publicly visible activities not directly related to mediumship.
- You can read more about Spiritism's core tenets here.
- A Brazilian and an aspiring Canadian.
- A furry and a brony.
- I entered the furry fandom through the The Lion King fandom. Apparently I really like human-free, biped-scarce fiction.
- Although I used to have a feline anthro fursona, I've ceased to use it since 2014 or so, and now it kind of weirds me out when furries who know me for decades call me cheetah. I'm pretty happy to call my unicorn ponysona a fursona as well, but it feels like most furries don't like to see I conflated the two concepts.
- An optimist.
- That doesn't mean my thinking is "oh it's going to be fine", "oh that's good enough". To me that thinking is defeatist and pessimist.
- That means my thinking is "there's always room for improvement and that's a worthwhile pursuit".
I'm humbly building this website with Lektor because I find that I'm unable to trust a SaaS blog service (such as Medium), but I'm totally fine with a PaaS host.
