Helping humans build
digital products since 2002.
For over two decades, I’ve been creating digital products that deliver results for more clients than I can count. Most have solved big challenges, but some even ended up excelling their business goals. 📈 👉 💰💰💰 #humblebrag

* That’s “hello!” in Portuguese. Yes, I’m also Portuguese, and it’s ok if you can’t pronounce my first name; English-natives usually have trouble with it. But if you still want to give it go, try saying zhwaun (it’s not exactly the same, but sounds quite close!). And yes, I’ve been grey-haired since a really early age. I blame it on bad genes. 😅
What I doIn one sentence: I merge ideas with technology. 😏
Or at least that’s what I like to say. It’s abstract enough to cover most of what I do, yet it specifies the two major components: ideas and technology.

With startups and small businesses I help defining a solution for the problem at hand, refining it to better serve their customers and growing it to a successful product. Find out how I can help startups

Thank you for making us look good! The app has had excellent feedback from senior stakeholders, and everybody is pleased with it. So many thanks from me for your efforts here! We will be in touch very soon about future opportunities at Razorfish, and hope to see you again soon.
Thank you so much for all your wonderful work. It is absolutely incredible, and the client was blown away, so thank you for all your efforts on this!
I hope we have the opportunity to work together again in the future as you always deliver!
João is a true perfectionist, he gets deeply involved in every project he is working on. As a developer not only he is always on top of his game but he also participates with valuable input in the creative decisions. He is a great guy to work with.
It was a real pleasure to work with João. By far one of the best designers I’ve met. Capable of producing innovative user interfaces, quickly adapting to new situations and always learning new techniques. He also has a great personality and is always ready to help. Hope our paths will cross again.
This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill—the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill—you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.
