Favorite thing: "I love being able to create products that people can carry in the palm of their hand and that serve them every day to improve / help their lifestyle"

Trying to learn: AR and Machine Learning

Recent challenge: "I worked building an app like Slack. The client wants a chat app with some particularities.  The challenge was I haven't any server/backend where connect. All the process will do on the client side. So, planning the architecture and can bring all the clients requirements was a challenge. In this case I choose use Firebase like my "backend" provider... so, I could create signup/signing with social media, phone number validation, account setup with audio and real time chat."

Proud of: "The app mentioned above makes me happy. I also worked for a client, where they don't want to use third party libraries, and the UI was so custom. So I worked creating the app taking account this custom UI, that has a lot with the animation and all do it without using external libraries."
