Greetings citizens of planet Earth, and other sapient beings who may (or may not?) be monitoring us from afar!
My name is Tiago, and I recently joined the Cardano Foundation as the Community Project Manager.
My mission taking on this role is to curate and further develop the Ambassador Program, Community Project Funding initiatives and the Community Feedback Process.
Moreover, I will be assisting in developing our Spanish and Portuguese communities, along with numerous other Internal Operations duties that will further advance the Cardano ecosystem.
I was born in Bahia, Brazil, but come from a traditional Portuguese family. My youth was spent between Australia and Spain before moving back to Porto, in northern Portugal, the place I call home.
Here are a few fun facts about myself. The only continent I have not visited yet is Antarctica (do we have a community there?). My studies are in Clinical Neuropsychology and Audio Engineering. The first computer I interacted with was an Acorn Archimedes. In my spare time, I enjoy working out at the gym while listening to indie rock music. There is an ongoing rumor I even play in a band. I can neither confirm nor deny it. I am also practicing to become an amateur FPV Quad Racer.
I love being challenged to new gastronomic adventures, the stranger the better! Next in my list are Surströmming and the Carolina Reaper pepper. I have a passion for organic gardening and even grow my own veggies and fruits. My favorite fruit is a banana!
I am proud to be part of Cardano, as I deeply believe in the scientific method for delivering long-lasting innovation. I have worked in the blockchain industry since 2013 and it is a rare sight to see such a well thought out and methodical approach to coding. It is this mindset that already makes Cardano an industry leader and ensures it becomes future-proof.
I look forward to meeting everyone in our vibrant community, both online and offline!
