I am a professional web developer, SEO/SEM specialist, eCommerce consultant and web entrepreneur, with over 22 years experience in web development. When I did my first web page there was only 250 sites in the world. I was luck to be an intern at the computer lab while I was doing the Civil Engineer course. At that time the Internet came to Brazil first at the Universities, and I was able to start to learn everything related to internet and web development.
After I graduated, I started working as Civil Engineer and on my spare time was doing simple websites for companies in Fortaleza, Brazil. Two years later, I went to the United States and accepted an offer to work for a dotcom. The year was 1999 and then I lived in South Florida for 8 years. I’ve lived in New York and Washington, D.C, while working as senior web developer consultant for Interamerican Development Bank. I relocated to Las Vegas in 2015 to expand the Custom Wheels business I have, and I am deeply in love with this town.
I am also a geek. Since I got my first computer, a TK85 (Sinclair) I don’t remember one day that I did not type something on the computers I had. When I got my first floppy drive (5 1/4), the idea of not having to wait for the K7 tapes to load the programs made me so excited that I couldn’t sleep for two days.
I am not religious to any hardware, programming language, database or operating system. I like to use the tools and not the other way around. Two recent exceptions to the rule are WordPress (click here to know why) and Ubuntu.
Some of my work done can be seen at High Tech Web, INC (finally updated in Dec. 2016). I have worked with ColdFusion, PHP, SQL Server, MySQL, Jquery, CSS and many other related tools/platforms. If you want to know more about my professional experience please visit my LinkedIn profile.
On my personal life, I am huge Fortaleza Esporte Clube fan (I did this brazilian soccer team first forum in 1996), dog lover, Gracie Jiu Jiutsu practitioner, ex-surfer, snowboarder addicted, proud father, near death survivor, I like sports in general, trying to hike more at the West US trails and love to travel. I like to read spirituality books and help people. If I have helped you somehow and you would like to reciprocate please visit my Amazon’s Wishlist, I’d appreciate your generosity.
