Professional Profile

I'm a Full Stack Web Developer from Brazil and I have 15+ years experience in web development. I can be a strong driving force for improving the performance, scalability, usability and reliability of development projects.

In 2003, I funded a small web agency (Mastop). I led that company until 2013 when I decided to close my office in São Paulo and I've worked from Home Office since then.

I've worked with the Xoops CMS in the past. In 2007, I developed an open source Content Module (which is used by lots of websites until today) named “Mastop Publish” and a Spotlights Management Module named “Mastop Go2". In 2009, I developed an e-commerce application for Small Businesses from scratch and we started to sell it as a service.

I'm interested in entrepreneurship and creating scalable web apps with UI/UX that don't suck. I also love working to improve the performance and usability of web apps.

Currently I work as an Independent IT Contractor/Consultant.

In 2019 I started a channel to do Live Coding sessions twice a week as @CodigoFalado (Portuguese for Talked Code). I'm broadcasting simultaneously to 4 platforms (Twitch, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter/Periscope). My goal is to create a developer community where we can all learn and grow together.

I study all the time. I read a lot, I work hard and I love to learn new stuff :)
