Co-founder of four very distinct projects. The first one was OC-Zone, the biggest Hardware News and Review Website in Portugal (10 years ago). In this project I wrote more than one hundred articles published online as well in magazines like PCGuia and Informática Fácil. The second project was a small software company named iTech-ON, the third a Marketing company named Bull Marketing and the fourth, my personal artistic project, Who Are You?

The last project is much more to express myself and to improve my creative capacities. Engineering work is powerful and great but not everything in life is about science. Like the phoenix reborn from ashes we can reborn from shadows...

Personality

Conscious, rigorous, strongminded and most of the time a Dreamer and Time Traveller. Every Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) test done pointed to INTJ personality.


INTJ Test Result

"Hard-working and determined – If something piques their interest, INTJs can be astonishingly dedicated to their work, putting in long hours and intense effort to see an idea through. INTJs are incredibly efficient, and if tasks meet the criteria of furthering a goal, they will find a way to consolidate and accomplish those tasks." from 16personalities.com

I love what I do, and I always try to do it well. If I stop liking something I will change it or quit and do something else instead. I truly believe in Holstee Manifesto.
