Don’t tell Bertha!

London, February 2075 1. Jamie’s commute to work is easy, his house by the Thames is situated just five minutes away from the river-bus stop in Gravesend. It’s not a common thing to commute to work when 96% of the British working population work from home. But Jamie works for the government, he has to…

Too late

I had faith, lots of faith on ourselves. I mean, I used to believe we would succeed. As a species, and transform our environment. But no, we kill. But no, we destroy. But no, we transform. Good into bad, not bad into good. People are tired, mutilated by love or no love. People are not…

Running away

I had taken the bus outside Holborn station, it was a really warm day, the bus was packed. I managed to catch up with all messages on my phone, had at least 10 unread ones. After checking my inbox and replying everyone I played some jazz and put the phone in my back pocket. Half…

Mankind cycles

“Contact”, the Hollywoodian adaptation of the Carl Sagan novel of the same name, was one of my favourites movies in my chilldhood. The feeling the movie used to give me, and still does when I watch it, was really amazing. The idea of receiving a message from another civilisation from another place in the universe…

S(t)imulation

It doesn’t have a central point orchestrating everything, instead, it has many different ‘processors’ sending messages across different areas of the organ, using long and short memories to store and access information. Computers…

The eco-friendly village…

Personal development page

In 15 months working at Sky I built a list of things that in my opinion needed to be improved, some of them I have addressed in my team during the day-to-day, some in our retros, another ones I had to think outside the box to be able to make a difference, and I will…

Circus

This is a piece of work I have been working on recently called “Circus”. It’s a protest against all circuses using animals as a form of entertainment. The yellow colour represents the money gained by people with forced animal work and the red colour represents the blood of all animals living into small cages suffering…

Gatos

Quando criança eu não suportava viver com o fato de existirem coisas inexplicáveis. Eu queria respostas, era sedento por explicações. Eu nasci um menino de exatas e sempre quis saber como tudo funcionava desde criança. Sabe o Zequinha do Castelo Rátimbum? Pois então, eu era pior. Eu sempre fui muito revoltado, como assim não sabemos como…
