About me 👱‍♂️

Hello! 👋

I was born in the city of Leiria, in 1990. I studied at the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria where I got my Bachelors degree in Computer Science and a Masters in Mobile Computing.

Since 2012 I’ve been working on @WIT_Software as a Android Lead Software Engineer from #Leiria.

I also drink coffee ☕️.
