My Experience in the Tech World
This is what I've done so far in the tech world:
My journey from Psychology to Programming
I studied Psychology at the Lusófona University in Lisbon, Portugal. During my bachelor degree, I was part of a research team of the Psychology Department. This team focused on developing virtual environments to treat anxiety disorders.
My geeky passion for computers and video games became a big advantage at the time. I was quickly immersed in learning 3d modelling, texturing and programming.
Although the psychology was starting to fade away, I finished my MSc in Clinical Psychology. Only to proceed to the University of Salford to complete an MSc in Creative Games.
After coming back to Lisbon, I went back to the University to lecture statistics in the Psychology Department. But, I never stopped deepening my knowledge about virtual reality and game development.
Soon, I got my first job as a Unity Developer. And it was the starting point of my career as a Developer.
