I've been playing games my whole life and that ended up being pretty useful.
I joined the GameDev-PT community in 2002 and drew some gaming related comics. After a while I started writing humoristic articles, and producing podcasts and video content for a notoriously funny blog called Rumble Pack. Eventually that got me to write and illustrate for the short lived Portuguese gaming magazine Smash!.
I finally got my chance to work in the videogame industry at GameInvest, which lasted 2 years and 6 months until the studio closed. Before that I made some smaller games with the Make A Game team.
So yeah, I'm unemployed now, waiting for your awesome job offer. Here's my LinkedIn profile.
