Web Design

Then I did a one year post-graduation in Web Design, at Escola Superior de Tecnologias e Artes in Lisbon, Portugal (ESTAL)

There I was introduced to the essentials of coding in HTML, CSS, jQuery, Javascript and PHP and the final project was to apply that knowledge to develop a website from scratch, also developing a small back-end for it.

ESTAL where I studied Web Design

And still studying

My interest in coding continues to grow since then and I’ve been self-learning and modernizing my knowledge in this vast and rapidly changing area. Also adding knowledge in Sass, Twig, Blade and more recently React.

About my personal interests

I love music and I compose my own songs!

You can find me on:

I started playing guitar when I was in high-school and I immediately wanted to make my own songs and to be able to sing while playing. With love and patience I was able to achieve that and I shared my songs on-line and did some concerts. I was also part of a small band during high-school and part of a crazy funny band in college, called Die Kiri.

I was very influenced by artists such as Hyde, The Doors, Nick Cave, Led Zeppelin, Diabo na Cruz, B fachada, PJ Harvey, Nirvana, Tenacious D and more. You might find me covering some of their songs.

Unfortunately, nowadays I don’t have so much time to compose new songs but my love for music is always with me. I still find excitement knowing more about my favorite artists, watching concerts and recording some riffs and lyrics.

Other interests

Travelling

I love travelling specially with the people closer to me.

Dining out

I love simple things, like dining out or have a nice drink with friends.

Favorite series, movies and games

I enjoyed a lot the Twin Peaks series and really any movie from David Lynch.

In terms of animated series and movies: Evangelion (first time I watched it entirely was trough eMule, anyone remembers it? lol)

In terms of games the epic Nier: Automata. To play on-line my guilty-pleasure is Rocket League.
