PEDRO BRANCO

CREATIVE THINKER

“Some people see things as they are and say why. I dream things that never were and say why not?”
George Bernard Shaw/JFK

The complete idea-ot. By focusing on emerging needs its easy to create/re-create products and services to solve such needs.
Pre-alpha man: I am always testing and adapting the latest technologies to find new usages and applications.

I currently work as a creative/IT mercenary, on various missions, for different companies and business areas.

GREAT IDEAS

I consider myself an “Idea-ot”. Everywhere I look new products, advantages or improvements present themselves. It is just a matter of decoding them. My vast think tank is the best proof of this hability.

ASK “WHY NOT?”

Get outside the box! Rip it off if you need! Or get a new box! Expand your problems and you will multiply your possible solutions.

GONZO PROGRAMMING

Derived from Journalism this mentality allows a more personal coding experience. I always code seeing myself as the final client but still saving some critical judgment and inputting my personal experiences and emotions.
