I live in Coimbra, Portugal, where I was born in 1994. I started programming when I was 12 years old and using Linux when I was 15. Since then, I started developing small projects and doing some personal research about Computer Science. When I was in the high school I spent a lot of time exploring the world of Information Security instead of studying Chemistry and Biology (Physics FTW). Then, I went to the University of Coimbra.
I always loved Infosec and participated in online security challenges. In April 2015 I joined a CTF team, xSTF (Extreme Security Task Force), a group of students from the University of Porto.
I just completed a Bachelor in Computer Science and I'm going to take the Master in Information Security in the next two years in the University of Porto.
