Hey guys

I am Tomaz Saraiva,
a software developer
based in Lisbon.


I developed my first virtual environment to help individuals with PTSD, sparking my passion for combining psychology with technology. With over a decade of experience developing apps for VR/AR, mobile, and web, I've created over ten virtual reality environments for mental health research among many other products.

In addition to product development, I've taught courses at the university level and beyond for over ten years.

My ultimate goal is to create products that positively impact people's lives while sharing my expertise with others.
