Who is c.bavota?
I started working with layout and design a long time ago, when I still had aspirations of becoming a rock star. For some reason, I was in charge of the artwork for my band’s (crappy) tapes, and although they didn’t really sell, they introduced me to graphic design.
When I started freelancing full time as a programmer back in 2007, I was learning a lot and picking up new techniques left and right. I wanted to share it all in hopes that others might benefit from all of my trial and error. That is how bavotasan.com was born.
What is a bavotasan anyway?
When I lived in Vancouver I was an assistant manager at this movie theater, and company policy forced employees to refer to me as Mr. Bavota. I was not a big fan of the formality, so I made everyone refer to me Bavota San, which is just the Japanese way of saying Mr. Bavota, but I’m not Japanese, though I do enjoy their culture and cinema. 😉
Is “c” your real name?
The short answer is no. The long answer is also no. My name just starts with the letter “c”. I decided to refer to myself as c.bavota in order to have some sort of anonymity online. But maybe I did it just to be cool. Who knows? But my real name is actually Cxxxxxxxxxr.
