My name is Tom, I am an eternal student of this existence.
"The proof is in the pudding."
That is how the saying goes. Thus, I won't put too much emphasis on a description or bio cannot fully display my talents adequately as eloquent writing does not ensure the person you are dealing with is skilled or talented.
Aside from technical/design skill I am very proud of the following:
At the age of 11 I participated in the E-Trade "You've Got Mail challenge" playing against many experienced traders, including my father whom I outranked as well. I ranked at a level (If I recall -- Top 100 or 200) which I was recognized personally by E-Trade by receiving a t-shirt and hat and most importantly a letter of congratulations which mentioned I placed well above Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.
