Enthusiastically embracing the world of computing, I hold a bachelors degree in computer science and bring to the table 6 years of exhilarating experience in the realm of software development. My professional journey has been a dynamic exploration, immersing myself in a rich tapestry of technologies, including TypeScript, JavaScript, Java, Spring, React.js, React Native, Node.js, Docker, and AWS. Beyond technical prowess, my expertise extends to agile methodologies such as Scrum, Kanban, and Jira, complemented by a deep understanding of databases like MongoDB, MySQL, and PostgreSQL.

In my current capacity as a Front-end Developer, I play a pivotal role in a highly collaborative team. Within this dynamic ecosystem, collaboration with the Product Owner, QA, and UI/UX Designer is key as we collectively refine and innovate on new features. I take pride in my adept bug triaging and correction skills, coupled with a consistent commitment to pair programming alongside a team of 3 frontend developers—underscoring our teams ethos of continuous learning.

Fueled by an insatiable curiosity, my quest for knowledge extends beyond technical horizons. I actively seek out challenges that allow me to apply my expertise in a meaningful way. This commitment isnt limited to technical proficiency; I am equally dedicated to cultivating meaningful interpersonal connections. Teaching and leading others increasingly fuel my passion.

Life's timeline

The year of my birth
Computer Technician
I began my academic journey in the field of technology at Senac in Rio de Janeiro, where I had the opportunity to explore various programming languages, including PHP, JavaScript, and Java, as well as deepen my understanding of the fundamental principles of HTML, CSS, and computer assembly and maintenance practices.
First Freelance Project
Taking my first step as an independent professional, I embarked on creating a website as a freelancer. This marked my debut as a developer, and the project involved designing a website for a rock band, where I applied all the knowledge gained during my Technical Computer Science course. On that occasion, I skillfully built a website enriched with a customized content management system, implemented using PHP, jQuery, HTML, and CSS. From then on, I carried out numerous freelance projects.
I joined the community pre-college program SejaMais, based at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro. There, I had the opportunity to perform maintenance on the project's website, and over time, I advanced to the role of leader in website development. Additionally, I created small applications to assist SejaMais students in their studies.
Computer Science
I enrolled in a private college in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with a 100% scholarship. I devoted myself to maintaining an exemplary academic performance, conducting my assignments and studies with excellence.
I began my first experience as a permanent employee at eTarget, working as a full stack engineer and being involved in the development of a variety of projects, including websites and other initiatives.
I joined the team of developers at Valora, bringing with me an extensive background as a front-end development specialist.
Currently, I am a part of the front-end team at Sensedia, where I am involved in migrating the old front-end built in AngularJS to ReactJS. Additionally, I am assisting junior developers in adopting best development practices and enhancing their techniques.
Graduated as a computer scientist.
I invested maximum effort in this degree, achieving the advantage of reducing one semester from the total duration to devote myself to advanced studies in technology, aiming to deliver higher quality products.
