    Italy - Last active: 1 day ago - Portfolio: 7

    Italian native speaker, based not too far from Venice, where I help tourists getting deeper lost in the street labirinth :-) I am Maths and Riddles enthusiast: I began solving Sudokus in preparation for the competition, and participated in the Italian championship that year. That changed my life: now I own my puzzle company and I enjoy sharing my games to other puzzles fans. I am best known for the introduction of Sudoku & Dragons. I have developed interest in many "nerdy" things, like Rubik's Cube: my personal best is 39''. You can learn it in one afternoon!

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 23

    I'm a self taught programmer with experience largely in C++, but also in Haskell, PHP, Pawn, Lua, and NASM. I have a full decade of work in game modding communities, and have worked on linux patches, game engines, and the intricacies of the C++ compiler and object model for many years now. If you need to squeeze more speed out of your code, or come up with expressive and elegance solutions to unusual or involved problems, that's what I excel at.

    I have worked for three years as an independent Unity contractor, primarily in the realms of complex games and desktop & web applications. My Unity3D programming skills are nearly as good as my written and verbal English skills, which the SAT once told me were in the top .8% in the US. My gains from independent employment have paid for the >100 credits I've earned at my school. I am part-time finishing my last seventeen credits at College of Idaho (quote "Idaho's most prestigious undergrad college"), pursuing a polymath BA in Computer Science and International Political Economic Philosophy. I want to one day become an effective political activist for reform in America. My facebook handle is Political Reform Colin.
