I have been very active in the European Aerospace Industry for the last decade. I started in Avionics projects in a company initially called RTSN that changed it's name to Skysoft. After a brief stint to finish my Master's course in real-time systems, I found a project that I liked so much that I decided to move to Germany to pursue it. The experience was very rewarding, but unfortunately it was very brief.

In my new company, Critical Software, I dedicated myself to space projects and eventually became a fixed-term contractor for the European Space Agency, in Darmstadt (Germany again). The experience gained there enabled me to start a new job for GMV in Spain, designing and implementing the satellite control system for some of the world's major players in the telecom satellite industry.

For personal reasons, I decided to return to Portugal three years later, where I dedicated myself professionally to Drupal, first as a Freelancer and then working for Trellon, where I got the chance to help make the world a better place while working with an amazing team.

However, after one year, I got an offer that I just couldn't refuse to go back to "space", working as an AIV engineer in the Galileo Control Center in Oberpfaffenhofen (near Munich) in Germany (again...). I'm thrilled by the fantastic team and work that I am currently working with.
