Experiensed software developer

New profile

Long ago, my father imparted a dual directive: pursue a profession that offers financial stability, and then, find one you genuinely enjoy. Thus, in 1999, my foray into software development commenced – a path initially paved by the allure of monetary gain. However, this initial motivation led me astray, resulting in a series of misguided decisions. I found myself entangled in projects devoid of personal resonance, grappling with technologies that failed to ignite my passion. Consequently, by 2010, I found myself drained and disillusioned, prompting my departure from the field. In the aftermath, I sought solace in alternative pursuits, dabbling in artistry and carpentry. Yet, amidst these diversions, a yearning for the intricacies of technology persisted. While these endeavors provided fulfillment on a personal level, they ultimately proved to be mere pastimes, unable to satisfy my professional aspirations. In 2019, fueled by a desire to reignite my career, I embarked on a transformative journey through a bootcamp, refocusing my expertise on the dynamic realm of web development. Since then, I've rediscovered the joy inherent in software engineering, embracing each challenge with renewed vigor. Though my journey has been marked by twists and turns, I stand now with a wealth of experience, albeit humbly acknowledging that I am not yet an expert in this ever-evolving field. Originally hailing from Brazil, I now reside in Portugal with my wife, drawn by the promise of a different way of life and the opportunity to forge deeper connections with our relatives. Our time here has been nothing short of fulfilling, as we eagerly embrace the myriad experiences and opportunities afforded by this new chapter.

Fullstack Engineer

As a developer, I bring a unique blend of technical expertise, creativity, and a passion for problem-solving to every project I undertake. My journey into the world of software development began with a deep curiosity for understanding how technology shapes our daily lives. From tinkering with code in my spare time to pursuing formal education in computer science, I have continually sought to expand my knowledge and refine my skills. One recent milestone that stands out is leading the development of a scalable web application for a prominent client, which received rave reviews for its intuitive user experience and robust performance. This accomplishment not only showcased my ability to deliver high-quality solutions but also demonstrated my commitment to exceeding client expectations. I am constantly seeking opportunities to learn and grow, whether it's diving into a new programming language or mastering the latest development frameworks. Recently, I delved into the world of machine learning, exploring its potential applications in enhancing user interactions and streamlining business processes. What truly sets me apart as a developer is my ability to translate complex technical concepts into user-friendly solutions that drive value for both businesses and end-users. I thrive in collaborative environments, leveraging my strong communication skills to bridge the gap between technical and non-technical stakeholders and ensure project success. At the core of my work is a deep-seated passion for leveraging technology to create positive change. Whether it's developing sustainable solutions to address climate change or building innovative tools to empower marginalized communities, I am driven by a desire to make a meaningful impact through my work.
