Hey, that's me

The son of a typographer

"Constantly striving to learn, evolve and mature, while staying true to values such as humility, respect, friendship and sense of humour, will always be the secret to a happy and successful career in any profession."

Throughout my career, I have had the good fortune and the privilege of working with some extraordinary professionals. With them, I have learned and matured, never losing sight of the need to surpass myself, to grow and keep growing. I have worked in small, medium-sized and large companies, on small products as well as huge international products that lead their respective industries and markets. I have been part of fantastic teams where I learned an enormous amount.

I have become a Scrum Master, followed the Kanban method and studied the principles of Agile software development. I have worked directly with a wide range of customers, from private individuals to celebrities and music stars, always maintaining the same determination and professionalism. I am firm believer in good humour and in keeping a positive, optimistic outlook. I try to smile and to take pleasure in what I do each day. I am the proud father of two princesses.

I did it my way

“The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”
