Welcome to my Personal Website
If you love what you do, others will love it too
My name is Filipa Falcão Reis and I see myself as a student of life, always learning new things and eager to learn more. Therefore, I enjoy new challenges and I am always looking for how to overcome my limits. The only limit that exists is the one that lies within us! Thus I am a passionate person who has courage to stand for her beliefs and the drive to lead initiatives with optimism and fierce determination "making things happen": "Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts" (Winston Churchill).
I love to create innovative products, I hate to "re-invent the wheel", I like to be disruptive! I am also an Agile practitioner, a Fashionista and Music lover (check out my playlists on Spotify)! If you still would like to now more about myself, where I come from and how I got into Computer Science, please have a look at the "About me" section of this website.
Latest from me ..
As you can see from my tweets, Technology is not my only passion. Indeed, I am a Fashionista attracted by any piece of clothe that has pink color on it (literally strolling the web or London stores for the next item to add to my collection .. is there such a thing as too much pink?), I avidly read Vogue and Agatha Christie’s crime novels (trying to catch the killer before it reveals itself or before my "Salted Caramel" ice cream melts .. did I mentioned how much I love to hang out with Ben&Jerry ?). I love comic books, particularly Spider Man (Marvel) and Batman (DC) but there is nothing like a good dose of laugh with "Calvin&Hobbes". Yeah, but either if I am reading or strolling stores or just "getting lost" in London I am always with my music and my Parrot Zik on (my soul is an hidden orchestra .. can't live without music)! I am also a movies' enthusiast (who isn't?!), "Star Wars" is the best double trilogy ever made, but my favourite movie is "Breakfast at Tiffany's", Audrey Hepburn was such an amazing artist, a true inspiration! Hummmm .. Let’s just say that I am a geek at heart with a Fashionista killer instinct to bring balance to the force.
