Hi! I am João/Josh.

I'm the author of Bagnon, Scrap, PetTracker and more. In this site you will find a bit about me.

I've been a software developer, gamer and nerd overall for two decates now. My professsional journey started quite unexpectedly when I was 12 years old and created some of the most popular third-party software for World of Warcraft. On the academic front, I hold a PhD in computer graphics and machine learning. My research has primarily focused on developing real-time or learning-based solutions to computer graphics problems, such as optimizing rendering performance, enhancing skin simulation or improving hand-drawn animation. I've lived all around the world but am currently based in Coimbra, Portugal.
