I’m Francisco
in Berkeley, CA
Berkeley, CA

I grew up in sunny Portugal, right on the coast, and now live in the American equivalent, the Bay Area.


I work at Superlist, where we're simplifying productivity through great design, robust engineering, and groundbreaking AI. Throughout my time, I've contributed in a variety of ways: from storytelling for fundraising, to branding, and product design. These days, my focus is on AI Engineering, exploring how we can harness the great power of LLMs to build a world-class product.


Work aside, I'm also a forever student. I taught myself how to program over the past couple of years, and I'm now taking up math from scratch at City College. In my free time, I make art, read science fiction, go for long walks in San Francisco, workout, and I'm now considering getting a bike to go for long rides.

Past Lives

In another life, I made pitch decks for Hollywood studios in Los Angeles for about six years, designed digital products in Berlin for another five, dabbled in wearable technology in Lisbon for one, and dropped out of a fine arts / painting degree at age 19.

Find Me

You can find me via email. I split my weeks loosely between Berkeley and San Francisco and am always open to chat.
