about me

Hello! I’m an engineer that loves to play with JavaScript. I’m using React.js for about four years and I've been using Node.js for almost six. I’m usually more front-end oriented but I also believe that Hapi.js is amazing. I worked with completely different businesses so far: travel, services/authentication, news, sports, tooling, health and e-commerce.

I’m always searching to learn something new and gain new skills (not only tech skills!). Besides JS I love to learn new stuff with my 1 year old son and taking photographs. I do pilates twice a week and I tried yoga for two years before that. I played football for some years.

I already gave minimal contributions in some relevant open-source projects, but I never focused in one in particular. I am truly committed to the projects I am professionally in and I already led some front-end teams. I like to attend to conferences and meetups from time to time and I was a speaker 20-25 times. I was the main organiser of the JS meetup in Lisbon, and Nodeschool Lisbon event for four years.

I also like teaching and I already created React.js/ES6/Node.js/GraphQL training materials, gave some courses in public events (meetups) and training in companies events (both on-site and remote). I also participated as a mentor on few CoderDojo Lisbon events.

My main interest areas are: web protocols, web security and accessibility. Btw, I volunteer 1hour/week to be with a blind 70yr old amazing hacker!
