I have always been fascinated by computers and what they could do. My interest is within mathematics, telecommunication (Ph.D.), and data mining, the later is with a telecommunication company. More of my research could be found at ( That’s why I have found Foldit very interesting. All those combinations, impossible to get the correct answer intrigues me.

I have 25 years of professional experience in IT, rewrote ray tracing software in x86 assembly language, built a 3d interface for LCD shutter glasses so I could play Descent stereoscopically in 1996, optimized Raistmer's SETI at home in SSSE3 assembly, created and sold computer art, wrote up and filed patents, trademarks, domains.

I like to push frontiers and discover new ones.

I have funded and built a series of workstations exclusively for use with Foldit, running 24/7 reaching a historical 25.000.000 moves on may 7th 2012 at 15:45 UTC. Just over a year later introduced a new achievement to honor breaking a new frontier, the 50 Megamoves limit:

I reached Global Soloist Rank #1 position for the first time on june 24, 2012 at 14:00 CET.

Contenders is my home and I feel happy being among like-minded souls who are passionate about what they do.

Retired technology professional finally escaped from tech giants sanity intact. Except can't seem to get shut of foldit. But hopefully contributing to advancing the art of protein folding with occasional pressure on the better folders.

I have recently shifted careers to become a high school educator. I am having fun in the trenches of urban education. My first (academic) love is enzyme catalysis, and my second is protein structure. I am learning to love motivating young people. Foldit exercises another part of my brain that teaching does not.
