João Santa Cruz
Software Engineer, musician, sound programmer, farmer and carpenter apprentice. Developing user experiences for +15 years now, JSC started by creating intranet browser applications. Searching for larger scale projects, moved to large scale development where seriously learned about web while the technology itself was growing. Went from static to full administrable, intranet and public websites, front/back-end applications, web-services, widgets, integrations, documentation, e-commerce and forums. Back in 2007, while exploring the web environment, João had built his own collection of tools. Later, his passion to deliver content & features to the user, lead him to study about mobile platforms. After a four year period as a full-time mobile applications developer, João started to search for the next step. Freelance was the way. Since then he is working every day to find creative ways to deal with real life challenges. In the early 90's João had the chance to form and collaborate in several music projects. Later he devoted to explore music composition, music production, sound programming and instrument building.
