Hi, I'm Leonel. I am a carbon-based human who lives on the southernmost end of Portugal.

Mug shot!

When I'm not working, I'm most likely spending time with my family, shooting photos, reading books (1), watching movies or series, playing videogames (2), rolling dice in Dungeons & Dragons, tinkering in my tiny workshop, riding my bike on trails or driving my classic car on a mountain road.

1. Sci-fi, fantasy, horror, comic books and manga.

2. Switch (SW-2476-2402-3620); PS4 (NSNull).

Work

I'm an indie developer that builds apps targeted at Apple platforms (mainly iOS and tvOS) for myself and for clients, I occasionally do some design, web development and maintenance. I like to build good looking minimalistic apps that work well. I end up spending most of my time working with Swift, Objective-C, HTML/CSS and PHP, but I'm curious about many other areas and technologies.

Photography

I love photography. Sadly I don't shoot as much as I would like, but when I do, I use a Fujifilm X-T4 mirrorless camera, an old 1969 Olympus 35 SP rangefinder film camera (35mm) or my trusty iPhone.

Before: Fujifilm X-E2, that I regret selling, because it is a great camera and I loved the form factor (2016-2022); a Nikon D80, great camera with an awesome CCD sensor, but died with the infamous shutter error (2007-2016); and a 2 megapixel (!) Canon A60, with a dead screen (2003-2006).
