Hi, I'm Manuel
Problem solving Civil Engineer by day... and IoT Developer by night.
I started my professional life as an architecture designer at the Bruno Bossart in St. Gallen, Switzerland, where I acquired the bases that still define me as a professional (thank you Mr. Bruno and the whole team).
After this period, where I developed a strong taste for arts and construction methods, I moved to Portugal where I was hired as a Civil Construction Technician by the Câmara Municipal de Serpa (City Hall). On the following 5 years I became a student-worker to attend a degree in Civil Engineering at the Polytechnic Institute of Beja, Portugal.
Once I graduated, I moved to Vila Nova de Milfontes where I was welcomed by the company Construções Filipe Silva & Martiniano, to accomplish the internship for the Order of Technical Engineers. At the end of my internship, I assumed responsibility for the company's charter and I am currently the construction and production director, leading a team of 15 multidisciplinary people.
I am an engineer, optimistic and curious who seeks to grow personally and professionally through constant challenges.
