Hi, I am Lucas Dreher a proud gaucho from the charming town of Gramado in the southern region of Brazil. I want to share with you my journey that led me to an exciting switch in my career and show you that behind every line of code, there is also a personal story.
After bidding farewell to the tranquility of Gramado, I embarked on an exciting adventure by enrolling in a Federal University in Florianópolis to pursue a degree in graphic design. During my studies I have decided to pursue a new passion: obtaining a helicopter pilot license.
However, it was in Porto Alegre, the bustling tech hub of the region, that I realized my true calling and set out to reshape my professional trajectory to become a frontend developer.
How did I end up in the Netherlands?
Driven by a desire for a better lifestyle and a vibrant culture, I relocated to the Netherlands, a country renowned for With its vivid cultural canvas and a tech industry brimming with diversity and global influences, the country provides an environment ripe for growth. Its unrivaled quality of life was the decisive factor that clinched my decision. And what made me stay? The people.

I especially appreciate the culture of constant learning and innovation, which allows me to stay ahead in the ever-evolving world of frontend development. The collaborative environment and growth-oriented mindset have played a vital role in advancing my career.
The role I have today stems from my background in graphic design and my desire to expand my skills exploring new opportunities. I was always fascinated by the combination of aesthetics and functionality in digital interfaces, and I got excited by the idea that one day I would be transforming my own design concepts into interactive experiences.
Curiosity Drives Innovation
Beyond the code, my experiences have played a pivotal role in shaping my creativity and problem-solving abilities. Picture this: traveling to far-flung places, immersing myself in diverse cultures, and embracing challenges with a fearless spirit. It’s been an adventure that’s transformed the way I approach my work. With each new journey, my mind opens up to fresh possibilities, allowing me to craft innovative solutions to even the most complex problems.

These passions of mine have become a wellspring of creativity, infusing my work with a burst of imagination and unconventional thinking.
Looking back at my incredible journey, my drive remains unwavering: to create remarkable solutions through the power of code. The technical aspects, the problem-solving challenges—they all play their part, no doubt. But what truly fuels my fire is witnessing the impact my work has on the lives of end-users.
