As a technology professional with a passion for finance, I am dedicated to connecting people, technology, and corporate vision. My career has been about creating scalable solutions that deliver strong ROI and a bespoke fit with corporate goals.

Originally from Portugal, I studied Computer Science at NOVA University Lisbon before working for financial institutions in Lisbon, Warsaw, Amsterdam, New York, and Boston. I have also worked as a fractional technology leader for various Venture Capitals and other Funding Institutions, supporting due diligence deals and strategic investments.

In addition, I am a 2x entrepreneur in FinTech and have worked as a Director of Technology for several startups of various sizes, as well as advising startups on their technology strategies.

As a Chief of Technology at Netcapital, a NASDAQ-listed company, I am responsible for driving the company's customer-centric technology vision. I focus on creating clear visions and technology strategies that empower and support my talented team of product owners, engineers, and designers. I foster a collaborative and supportive work environment where everyone has the resources and support they need to overcome challenges and reach their full potential.

In my capacity as an investor, I have worked with startups across various industries, providing them with guidance on their technology strategies and helping them grow their businesses. I take pride in being approachable and available to help my team members and advisees navigate any difficulties they may be facing.

Effective teamwork and mutual support are crucial to success in any organization, especially complex ones. Throughout my career, I've seen the powerful, positive impact of change-oriented collaboration. I am excited to continue building my career based on those principles and even more excited about making a genuine difference.
