Through my chosen education on Thomas More University College, I leaned extensive basics of data analysis. Mainly data analysis through Relational databases and customer interrogation.

Hadoop Ecosystem

Since April 2014, I'm specializing myself into the Hadoop Ecosystem, the Cloudera Distibution to be specific. At this moment I have advanced experience with Pig-scripting, basic knowledge of Cloudera Impala and at the moment I'm getting familiar with apache Spark.


I learned the basics of R programming. To get familiar with R programming, the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) of Coursera was ideal to get a verified certificate. I completed the course with distinction (98,00%). The verified certificate can be found here.

Database Modeling

My first experience with database modeling was in High School. In University College, I took a Database Systems course where I learned database modeling. At this moment, I have professional experience of DB modeling.


The first time I worked with one of the SQL dialects, I had the age of 14. I learned the basics in high school and afterward I extended my knowledge and experience during my classes on Thomas More University College.

Data Visualization

In 2012, I was working for a big Portugese company for 2 weeks (International Project). WIthin these 2 weeks I learned how to work with Qlikview to visualize data. Afterwards I tried other visualization solution like SAS products, tableau... At this moment I'm working with D3.js

Html / Css / jQuery

I first used html, css and jQuery when I was 13 years old, starting with a website template and edited it to my needs. After my first experience with this, I decided to to some free online courses about webdesign and I started to create my own website templates.


Through my educational advanture on Thomas More University College, I developed my communication skills very fast. Thanks to classes like Public Speaking and cummunication skills.
