First album, first studio experience. Well, actually we did all the recording so this was all a very amateur experience, but this is when I fell in love with the engeneering involved and with the music business alltogether… It was a marking point in my life.
Back in 2007, after finishing my Computer Engineering degree, I started to feel really interested in designing for the digital medium. What started as a need to build some of my bands' websites, led to getting hired by SAPO, Portugal's largest Internet content provider, in 2008.
I started in this project called SAPO Mobile at the time, and quickly realized how lucky I was to be part of a team that developed products for what would become one of the largest growing tech business today. I immediatelly started working with iPhone and Android apps, mobile browsers, TV browsers and apps (from LG and Samsung, Microsoft Mediaroom, etc). Being pushed to the limit on what at the time seemed so new and undiscovered was one of the best things that could've happened to me. Nowadays I feel ready to take on any digital design challenge.
I also have this passion for african-american music from the 60s and the 70s. Stuff like jamaican music, soul, funk, r'n'b and latin music make me move my fingers a lot while I'm working. That compelled me to start learning some musical instruments, be part of some bands and make some semi-professional recordings with friends.
