What was your first experience with the internet? What year was that?

I guess it was around the year 2000. I was 10 years old, and most of what I did was download small games, or mods to games I was playing at the time. It wasn't until around 2003/4 that I had my first contact with a web programming language, when I was trying to set up a signup page for a MMORPG game server I had for the cybercafe i worked on at the time (after school of course, lol). I didn't have any idea of PHP at the time, or ASP. But I did everything I could to get it up, and find a way to change the stock web files I managed to get from online forums.

Where in the world do you like to work?

I love to work from home, in stuff I like. Having breaks whenever I need them, and continuing when I have the necessary focus to do so.

It takes off part of the stress.

What led you to work at Saucal?

Well, you know the story (no, you probably don't, but lets say Matias has known Mitch and Dom for a while, now). The good old nacho contacted us. And since that time, one project came after the other.

What is your favourite activity outside of work?

I watch a lot of TV Shows, and also enjoy watching movies.

I'm also a gamer, so whenever I get the chance I catch the gamepad and start up a good game. They're in a way like interactive movies for me (in some cases at least), some others are just terribly fun.

I also like spending time with friends, enjoy a good "asado" (our own version of barbecue here in Argentina), and have fun with the people I care about.

What is your favourite food/beverage?

My favourite food would be any sort of pasta. But as an Argentinian, I also enjoy a good Asado, joined with some Fernet (a drink, more info here
