Some other facts about me

Some quick points to get to know me better.


I was born in Lisbon on March 8, 1981. Family is my safe haven and the most important part of my journey. Passionate about what I do and always ready to learn and share knowledge.

Teach & Learn

Trainer in the front end development course @ EDIT since 2012 until 2022. It's been quite a ride to share and learn with a lot of great people along this year's. More to come. 


Start working in 1999 in a small company in Lisbon, in 2008 joined Grand Union (Fullsix Group) to work closely with UK and France, I have made my way until today as Head of Frontend @ Fullsix.


Like all geeks, Star Wars and Marvel are part of my culture, also reading, video games and spending time with my son, friends and family, preferably around a good meal.


I can place here a wall of awards that I have won with projects along the years, but the best award is to work every day with some talented people and be able to have a great team with me. That is the real award.


I really like Linkedin as a way to be connected to the world, to learn and share visions with people from other realities. Let's connect.
Ricardo is a complete leader. It is impossible to describe him without working directly with him, he attention he devotes to his team well-being as well as their technological growth (as his own too) is everything you can ask for someone responsible for a team. Ricardo likes to innovate, bring new technologies in order to improve his team's stack, likes to be aware of what is new and is not stuck in the past. In short, working with Ricardo is a pleasure and he is a really great asset in any company. João Borges ● Senior Frontend Developer at Fullsix Portugal in Linkedin
