Throughout his years of musical study, João was able to interact with a variety of musically talented artists with distinct musical styles, broadening his initial classical instruction. His first musical composition attempts go back to 1999, after daring a former colleague to collaborate with him in creating an original piece for a national contest entry.
Together with two friends in 2003, João formed a rock band, having one of their songs being included on a rock compilation (Novo Rock Português - Chiado Records). Since 2007, he has been using digital instruments and software to deliver a better musical experience to his middle school students. He joined the Elder Scrolls modding community in 2013 by creating unique compositions for the Beyond Skyrim project. On that same year he joined Druid Gameworks Studio LLC as Music Director.
