Welcome to my website. I was born in 1982 in a small town in north of Portugal. I moved to San Jose, CA in 2005 to work for IBM. A work assignment made me move and live in Toronto from August 2006 to December 2007, after which I returned to San Jose, where I have been since.

I occasionally write some technical stuff in my blog, but I prefer to spend my time enjoying one of the many hobbies I have: photography, sports (soccer, tennis, biking) and general outdoor activies from walking in the park to long hikes in yosemite.

If you want to know what I'm up to, you can check my Meetup groups and events or my Upcoming user profile.

If you are more interested in what I do professionally, my LinkedIn profile is probably the best place to look at. I frequently write technical articles, most of which can be found on the IBM developerWorks website.

I have great hope that somewhere in this world there is someone that wants to give me a gift, so I have a somewhat updated Amazon wishlist :-)

Thanks for visiting!
