A little about Pedro and his past.
I'm a Web Architect and have run my own business based in Brisbane and Auckland since December 2011.
I started working in IT back in 1997 as support technician. Since then, this has been my career path:
♦ 1999: web design
♦ 2000: programming
♦ 2006: system analysis
♦ 2007: web developer
♦ 2009: web architect
♦ Since 2014: front-end software engineer.
I was born in São Paulo and raised in Porto Alegre (both Brazilian cities). Towards the end of 2006, I travelled to New Zealand for holiday. I fell in love with NZ, and in 2016 I became a New Zealand citizen. Unfortunately, due the housing crisis in Auckland my family and I decided to stop paying rent and decided to move to Brisbane due to house affortability. Today we live happily in our own house in the sunny Brisbane.
I have 21 years’ experience in the IT industry: 9 in Brazil, 10 in New Zealand and 2 in Australia. To follow are the companies I have worked for as an employee:
♦ www.crea-rs.org.br (in Brazil)
♦ www.finda.co.nz (in NZ)
♦ www.olympic.co.nz (in NZ)
♦ www.trendsideas.com (in NZ)
♦ www.sparksinteractive.co.nz (in NZ)
♦ www.actionstep.com (in NZ)
