About & CV
I’m Bruno P. Kinoshita, born in 84 in Sao Paulo city, Sao Paulo, Brazil. I’m a typical Paulistano, and just love this city!
I started having fun with computers back in 98, and got my first job with computers years later working for a mobile carrier, in the VAS team. Back then I was a Java developer, but so far I’ve worked as Software Quality Engineer for about two years too, Infrastructure Engineer for about the same time, and lately I’ve been doing DevOps and Data Analysis projects.
Although I’ve had to wear different hats (even had my moment with *bioinformatics :), I’ve always programmed in Python, Java, Perl, R, C or some other language. In 2012 I’ve received the honor to become part of Apache Software Foundation as an Apache Commons Committer!
Apart from computers, I also like playing my guitar, climbing, drawing, walking on the slack line, dancing, swimming, watching some movies and reading Janet Evanovich, Haruki Murakami and Charlaine Harris’ books. While I’m programming I like listening to Celtic music.
I’ve already been to New Zealand, Argentina, Belgium, Netherlands, Portugal, Ireland, South Africa and United States. And, as many Brazilians (99% of the population I guess), I’m mixed race. My dad’s parents are from Kumamoto, Japan, and my mom’s parents are half Brazilian natives and half French (I think).
That’s all folks! Valeu!
