João Pimentel Ferreira was born in Lisbon on the twenty-second of June of 1980. He attended, as any child, a day-nursery and afterwards a basic school. At the seventh year of studies he entered in the Afonso Domingues high school situated in Marvila, a small neighbourhood in Lisbon. During his studies he always enjoyed courses related to art, history, languages, music, mathematics and physics. He was awarded during that period on the Olympiads of Mathematics; it was during these years that he started to play the piano. He started to write his first short prosaic text around the ninth grade, as it was optional on the Portuguese course. He visited Tunisia, United Kingdom and the Portuguese archipelagos during that period.
At the tenth year of his studies he applied at the same school to one electronics technological course, he has attended the lectures of this course till the twelfth year of his studies. In 1998 he entered in the Technical University of Lisbon on
