About me

The short version of my life story as a creative.

Who am I? Well let's start with the beggining. I was born in 1995 at the small city of Rio Maior, Portugal, and since I was a child, my interests were already connected in some way to what I do now. Initialy because of the infinite hours playing on a cheap Nintendo 8-Bit clone and when I learned how to use a computer, I spent my time creating masterpieces on Paint or making amazing Comic Sans powered Windows themes.

By the time (or maybe a few years later) I had in mind that my vocation should be on something between computer science and design. And so it happened in 2013, when I started my Bachelor degree on Design and Multimedia at University of Coimbra. Three years full of everything - design projects, websites, hackathons and much more that lead me to Whitesmith, where I'm currently working since 2016.

So, what I really do?
