About


Hi! I'm Rafael but people just call me Raf 😊

I'm years old, born in Lisbon and now a citizen of the world! 🇵🇹🌍

I'm a creative web developer who specialises in web & mobile development.

I like to get involved in every possible process of the conception of a web or mobile app as it allows me to be more productive and engaged with the projects I'm working on. I believe that this process allows the whole team to be more creative and positive about the outcome of their work.
