My name is Paulo Bala and I’m currently studying for my Masters in Entertainment Technology in Carnegie Mellon University / University of Madeira.

I was born in Madeira (a small island whose claim to fame has been Cristiano Ronaldo and wine), Portugal.

Halfway through Med school, I decide to follow my passion for technology and studied in University of Madeira, where I got my Masters in Computer Science.

I’m a self proclaimed film and TV buff who enjoys unusual food and doing 2D art (and I’ll be learning to do 3D art in the upcoming months). My Gallup strengths insight report identifies my themes as strategic, individualization, analytical, achiever and deliberative.

After finishing my Masters, I hope to work in the Location Based Entertainment field, making exciting interactive experiences mixing tech and art.
