Like everything where I have been involved, my dedication and proactivity are maximum,
because only working on excellence people can one day aspire to be good at something.
In January of 2016 I have been father of two boys for the first time. A doubly singular but extremely gratifying challenge, where responsibility is imposed and the tests to which we are daily subject are intensily judged.
I'm an engineering addict in its broadest meaning, however I've traveled through mechanical engineering. When I finished the course in 2008 I applied for a research fellow and since then I have been involved in the development of mechatronics devices, both in mechanical design and electronic design.
I started practicing sports with Karate in the Shotokan style when I was 12 years old,
but I was already in the Scouts. The following year I tried to conciliate the two
activities with the basketball in the
but two years later I had to make a choice and gave up from Scouts.
During the university phase I dedicated myself to other types of extra-curricular activities. I participated in projects which the goal was the creation of a bilingual newspapers and where i contributed by writing articles and realizing and maintaining the website. I integrated several groups such as "Tuna de Engenharia", as well as extra-curricular projects fomented by University of Porto. Furthermore I practiced ballroom dances during 4 years in the Academia Pedro Sousa and DANCETIME.
In 2013 I returned to Karate, but in the Goju Ryu style, complementing it with gym workout at the Academia da Praia, both in Matosinhos. In addition, I have maintained some hobbies involving mechatronic systems and model railroad at the N-scale.
