Hi, I’m Tiago. Pleased to meet you.
I am an experienced IT professional and entrepreneur that throughout life had many roles, like Co-Founder, Managing Director, Senior Producer, Technical Director and Lead Programmer.
I come from an Artificial Intelligence background, but have always been involved in other technical areas like Distributed Systems or Augmented and Virtual Reality.
Most of my career has been dedicated to Creative Media industries, with a huge emphasis on Videogames development, where I helped to develop a few industry acclaimed titles for all sorts of platforms, like 8 Ball Pool for Miniclip.
I love to be involved in the creation aspects of Product, Narrative and User Experience Design.
Bearing a varied skillset on my belt, I can speak the language of all production teams on a development process. From 3D to Data Science, Programming to QA, and Illustration to Sound Design, just to quote a few examples. I also have academic background in Behavioural Psychology, formal training in Agile Methodologies and plenty of experience in managing teams, from indies to multinational companies spread throughout different continents.
I am currently a Technical Director at Lockwood Publishing, creators of Avakin Life – and before that I was a Senior Developer (VR & AR) at Exit Games – creators of Photon, the world’s #1 Multiplayer Engine. I am also the Co-President of the Portuguese Chapter of the VR/AR Association.
I have also been a key figure in the Portuguese videogames development scene and spend most of my time between Portugal and the Nordic region.
