One of my biggest passions is to learn and create new things, and the biggest reward is to put this knowledge to use and improve someone else's life with it.
If a day goes by in which I haven't learnt anything new, that day has been wasted.

After leaving my university, I resumed working as a Bartender and began to work for a 4-Star Resort in the South of Portugal. This was a valuable experience because it was here that I started thinking about the idea of coming to London.

I learned a lot about hospitality during my time here and left as a more complete employee.
On my arrival in London, I joined this company as a bartender, but soon I found myself enjoying more the Art of Cocktail Making. I became more involved with the whole process, eventually started writing the Cocktail Menus for the Bar, also was in charge and providing Cocktail Master Classes for our customers as well as training new staff. It was an amazing experience that gave me refreshed Customer Skills, Communication Skills, Time Organization and Teamwork.

Being programming a career that requires constant learning and updating, I enrolled on a new course, that provided me with a new set of skills. Focusing on Java, this course game me the capability to have a deeper understanding of programming, and made it easier to learn new languages, by using concepts that are common to most programming languages. Covering everything from OOP, Functional Programing, JDBC, Concurrency, and much more, this course made a more capable programmer than before.
