A Bit About Me

Hello and welcome to my website, my name is Manoel Castelo Matos Neto. I am from Brazil and came to New Zealand about three years ago, I have been living here with my dad, brother and step-mom.

I study at Tawa College and have learnt many things about design, we used and learnt things about: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, HTML and CSS. I have designed this website for the purpose of showing future employees some of my skills and abilities for a job.

In this page I will talk about myself, things like hobbies, family and interests. If you want to check out my skills and work, you can click on the skills and the projects tab.

Hobbies & Interests


Everybody has a sport they like right? Well I am more of a football boy, you would probably expect that coming from a Brazilian...

Football has been a pretty big part of my life. Back in Brazil, as you would expect, people played football quite a lot: Before school, lunchtimes, after school and at home (Everywhere). I used to play quite a lot of street football and I still play football here in New Zealand. I play for the school during football season and I play at lunchtimes when it is over. It has been a hobby that I enjoy quite a lot and probably will for the rest of my life.


One of my hobbies, is magic, well... some people also say that it is a talent. When I first tell them that I am a magician... They usually laugh but after I show them something very cool... They ask me to do it again or do another trick. Magic has been a passion since about 2012 when I bought this crappy $3 magic kit and I have kept practicing and performing it since then.


I started playing guitar about 2 years ago. My passion for playing the instrument increased even more after I got an elctric guitar for my 14th birthday. The electric guitar is the perfect instrument got me because of my love for hard rock and heavy metal music which most people say it is a very odd and different music taste.

Video Games

Video games... Well, this is a pretty comong hobby for teenager boys and I am one of those boys. I love video games because I love the feeling of being in another whole new world, doing whatever I want, experiencing the story or just appreciating the art and beauty of it; Depending on the style of the game. I maybe also love playing games so much because I used to play since I was 2 years old.
