Welcome to my personal page on this blog :). My name is João Pedro Pinheiro Rufino, I did my studies in Universidade Nova de Lisboa in Portugal where I was awarded a Masters in Computer Engineering. Prior to that I studied 2 years of Applied Chemistry in the same university. I also have a diploma in Project Management from the Dublin Business School and an interesting diploma in New Economic Powers (BRIC) from the University of Oxford I also have several other small courses in areas that I find interesting and trainings provided by my employer.
I lived in Ireland for over 6 years and I am now currently living in London, UK. I’m a very social person that loves a good chat and loves a nice debate about… every topic to be honest! I see myself as a responsible person, dedicated to my job and that always try to learn more about the our world that is constantly changing and we need o keep up.
My great passion are animals, specially dogs and horses.
Because I love animals, I have at my place in Portugal, 7 dogs (all Sight Hounds), Whippets, Greyhounds and Afghan Hounds. My parents breed this dogs long before I was born. My dogs attend Dog Shows all across the world (but mainly in Portugal) and because of that I was always able to travel a lot. Regarding horses, I ride since I was 6. I have a degree of professor from the Association of the British Riding Schools. Because I left Portugal, I don’t ride as often as I did and now it is hard for me to keep improving. I also play football in a regular basis and I’m Sporting Clube de Portugal fan and supporter.
