With over 10 years as an enterprise level engineer, I’ve lead QA and development teams, garnered skills in design and development process. I like to do my research, help people grow on my teams, I’m keen on continuous integration systems and like to see a good code coverage. My core skills include Java/Jakarta EE, Microprofile, Spring, TomEE, JBoss, SQL, Drools, RESTful web services, Arquillian, Gigaspaces, PostgreSQL, Cassandra and many Java-based Enterprise relevant technologies.

I’m a JUG organizer in Coimbra (Portugal) and co-founded the Cork JUG in Ireland. I’m an Eclipse Microprofile committer and JNation.pt conference co-founder and organizer.

I developed location, logistics and Machine to Machine (M2M) platforms.

I was vice-president and technical director at Rádio Universidade de Coimbra (RUC), the oldest Portuguese college radio, an alternative music stronghold but also a center for broadcasting innovation. It was one of the first stations in the country to use digital media, own a web page, or live stream to the Internet.

I taught at the technicians courses and produced, with Alexandre Lemos, the program “Conversa Fiada”.

When I’m not busy in the world of bits and bytes, you can find me building with lego, listening strange vinyl records, doing some photography and swimming.
