03 : About me

Long Story Short

Hey there! My name is Miguel and I'm from Sintra, a small beautiful village in Portugal. I am currently living in Utrecht and working in Amsterdam, and this is one of the greatest adventures I’m experiencing so far. When I was young, I would've loved to become a videogame developer, but then I followed other passion I had at the time: Computers. To be honest, I was not a big fan of networks, algorythms and programming, but motion and 2D/3D animation. Now I work as a motion graphics designer and sometimes as a web designer: a mix of both worlds. Weird, huh?!
