    Hello folks,

    My name is Alex, known as "thehixel" on the wide web. I'm 20 y/o and 1 day and started my freelancer journey when I was only 13 years old. Just as stated in the title, I design stuff and I do it full-time.

    I heard about BHW before but never was curious enough to join it. However, there are a lot of successful people with great stories here and that's pretty much the reason I'm here.

    This is just a short introduction and I'd like to share more about my journey, starting with the first dollar I won. (where's the place to share that on the forum?)

    Cheers,
    Alex

    I'm on this road for 6 years now and because I did that mistake a lot of times, I learned my lesson.
