Hello and nice to meet you, my name is Christian and I'm a full time software engineer (full-stack Javascript), published poet, amateur musician, and hobbyist photographer.

I graduated (B.Sc.) in Computer Science from the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon, and completed my M.Sc. in Information Systems in the same institution. I spent one full year in the Polytechnic Institute of Catalunya (Barcelona) through the European interchange programme Erasmus Mundus. I also worked for almost two years at the research laboratory LabMAG (Laboratório de Modelação de Agentes), where after delivering my thesis, I continued working on project NAADIR.

I am interested in topics as wide as web development, computer graphics, video-game design, crypto-currency/fintech, artificial intelligence, data science, artificial life, literature, cinema, music and philosophy.

I have worked in various types of organization (academic, multinational, startup, etc) and am currently working at Trouva, where I find a fulfilling day-by-day, complete with a purposeful mission, fast development and a lot of growth. I often volunteer for projects that might have some meaning to me, but I am also open to provide services as a contractor - mostly for web projects, but also video-games, or others, so if you have a project that you think would be interesting to discuss, do get in touch and we can talk about it.
