Personal - Nuno Peralta
I love karate, piano, swimming, friendships.
I hate discos, smoking, drinking, drugs.

I care about people's feelings. I can't really trick anyone and I always try my best to make others happy and help them when they need. I hate selfish dudes.

I took a university course learning about networks and computers, but I mostly work on self-education, researching and learning about anything when I need.

I have my own businesses running, learning from my mistakes and looking for success. I'm very positive of my skills and what I can give to the world. I plan to change the world in some way.

I have five grades of Piano Study, but I don't study Piano anymore. You can watch me playing Czerny Op. 740 nr. 50 on Youtube.
I got my Shotokan Karate Black Belt in 2011.
