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 the notoriously funny Rumble Pack blog. 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.
