Quick intro about me:
I’m a Full Stack Web Developer with over a decade of experience in the industry. I have worked as a freelancer, in NGOs, small and medium-sized companies, ran my own web studio in Iceland (Brisa) during 4 years, and I have co-founded a tourism startup in Vietnam (Conbeo).
My most recent work experiences were re-imagining Tækniskólinn’s Web Development course to be a very efficient learning platform and creating de Linde’s website in collaboration with the Danish studio Limbo.
I seek to join a high-energy team of professionals to create beautiful and useful products with modern web technologies.

I like to tackle problems in a systematic and predictable way, without inflating the solution unnecessarily.
Thanks to extensive experience, I’m able to learn new Web Development-related technologies on demand.
I typically raise ideas about the projects and work environment in order to improve them.
I have an easy time stepping into other people’s shoes, which helps with being understanding and solving a wide variety of issues.
I’m a Web Development instructor since 2016 and co-creator of an entire Web Development course. More about that here.
I co-founded 2 companies. Making ideas become reality is a challenging and exciting concept to me.

I also coded features for their indoor positioning system.

Earned my B.Tech. degree in Computer Networks, worked with AIESEC in a range of positions, organized EESL, a student-led series of conferences about Open Source Software.
Art for all (List fyrir alla) has been working with Pedro from when our project was established in 2016. He designed our website, which is constantly in progress; needs additions and changes frequently, and there he is always positive and helpful in all communication and solves all our requests with a smile.
He is extremely good at connecting with new projects and suggestions, where he shows his enthusiasm and great artistic insight and therefore he has become a valuable team member to us from the very beginning and all the way through.
Pedro is a person whom transmits calm and reassurance, no matter how complex the task seems to be, executing it with competence and creativity.
He is a great person to ask for suggestions and evaluations. Much of this is due to his interest and knowledge in very diverse areas.
Few times have I met people who recognized their teammates' potentials so well, making him always a strategic presence in planning and projects.
I have been Pedro’s supervisor for several months. I found him to be consistently pleasant, tackling all assignments with dedication and a smile.
Besides being a joy to work with, Pedro is a take-charge person who is able to present creative ideas and communicate the benefits. He has successfully developed several research plans for our company that have resulted in new visions.
Though he was an asset to our marketing efforts, Pedro was also extraordinarily helpful in other areas of the company, like our technical departament.
I highly recommend Pedro for employment since he is a team player and would make a great asset to any organization.
Pedro is a focused, detail-oriented person with great interpersonal skills. He is always willing to learn and teach.
Working in partnership with him was productive and enriching. His good mood is a remarkable feature.
I play the guitar since my teenage years and have been looking for a band to join lately. Wanna jam? :)
Also, much to the influence of my friend Murilo Polese, I have been have been dabbling on Ableton Live and learning about synthesizers.
Early in 2020 I bought a Fujifilm X-T20 and have been having a fantastic time capturing some of the beautiful things I see around.

Drawing & Painting
Admitedly, I’m the worse at drawing. To counter this small issue, I love creating pictures that don’t require this skill, like creating patterns.
I’ve been experimenting with pencil, pen, watercolor and digital creation.
The questions with answers can amaze, but the ones without any make you stare into the void and wonder: why? 🔮
