I was born and raised in Lisbon’s city centre and that’s also where I’’ve been living and working: a centre of encounters between the old, the renewed, the modern, the traditional and the cosmopolite, between the calm life of some and the rush and the noise of others. A union of contrasts that have made and inspired me.
Since 2004 I’ve been working professionally as a webdesigner – specifically creating user interfaces, design for the web and doing front-end development. I also work with and contribute to an open source project – WordPress, a Publishing platform and content management system – I write articles for the Portuguese WordPress Community Blog and help out at the Portuguese forum.
I’m currently working as a Design Wrangler on Automattic – a dream job, working along side some of the most brilliant people I’ve met.
I’m also majoring in Webdesign & New Media at the San Francisco Academy of Art University as a way to learn some new tricks!
