Welcome to my Website

Me, Myself & I

I'm a '94 harvest, tailored by the philosophy "if you want something, work for it" made me stay always curious in everything and that lead me to interesting places.

For 3 years of college I explored many new areas of computer science, being my three main subjects Drones, Gesture Controlled Devices and Web Apps.

A year ago I became more focused in Web Apps development, due to RTFA and started in PHP, while developing RTFA noticed that with new languages I could get much more done with the same effort. A due to that applied to a scholarship at MIT Portugal and received and were 6 months of awesome learnings in programming Ruby, Matlab, SQL Server and ETLs and so on.

I'm the type of person that always thinks to the future to analyze if each move is the better one, but during some 4 years, due to kidney stones, I wasn't able to fulfill my views, last year in November when finally discovered that I had kidney stones I started to drink water a lot, and that made me sharp. Sharper at classes and generated cleaner thoughts, since then what I set as my goals I accomplish and that motivates me to do more.

So looking to the future I'm only focused in one project that will hopefully become my Master Thesis and probably my work after college. Send me an email if you want to know more.

One key ingredient that I like to add in my life that made me keep believing in a healthier future was motivation, so no matter what's your problem that is avoiding you to move forward don't be scared, you know the way to solve it and if you decide truly to change you'll discover that your problem is not bigger than your talent, personality or your goals for life. So plan BIG and go for it.
