I was lucky enough to start working in Cupertino when Jobs was still at Apple and I had the privilege of watching Steve himself presenting our work at the iCloud in the WWDC.
In 2014 when Google announced that orkut would be shutting down, it was a sad moment for us. Orkut had become a community of over 300 million people and it was such an amazing social network.
It was hugely popular in countries such as Brazil and India. We met amazing new people. We went on dates. We found new jobs. We even got married and had kids because of orkut.
Myself and the Yellowicon team collaborated with Google in many aspects from UI elements to icons, themes and branding. We also created the first mobile app for Orkut called Yogurt.
Norton™ provides award-winning antivirus and security software for PC, Mac, and mobile devices. From 2007 to 2009 I had the privilege of working with my team at Yellowicon and the Symantec team on this incredible product.
Fun fact: Norton Antivirus has a small appearance in a scene in the G.I.Joe movie from 2009. Back then, I was thrilled to see my design in a movie of my childhood toy heroes. =)

Working with the Open Source comunity and companies such as Conectiva, Linspire, Mandrake, QT and SuSE was not only terrific but also the best school one like me could have.
There is more...
Over the last ten years or so, I have had many incredible customers and partners. They are way more than I could list on short lines like this.
