Short Biography

I was born in 1987, I live in Santa Maria, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.

My first contact with GNU/Linux was in 2006, when I was a soldier in the Brazilian Army, I didn't have a computer, I used the Army computers, they ran Debian and they didn't have a hard disk, then I discovered that Linux Terminal Server Project - LTSP was what gave life to this equipment. I bought my computer in the year 2009 and used Ubuntu 9.04 for a few months, then I migrated to Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 (Lenny) and I have used it as my main Operational System ever since, today I use Sid.

My first contribution was with xva-img, Citrix XenServer .xva disk extraction tool, then came other packages and I got interested in security tools, I also maintain some golang libraries.

I dedicate a little bit of my time to Debian because it's something that makes me feel good.
