About

Filipe Fortes, 2010

I work at Flipboard, where I'm the Technical Lead for Flipboard Pages.

Previously, I was the co-founder and CTO of Treesaver, where I created Treesaver.js, a JavaScript framework for creating magazine-style layouts using standards-compliant HTML and CSS.

Before Treesaver, I worked as an independent consultant specializing in user interface design and development. My clients included Yahoo!, Bloomberg LP, BigThink, the John Templeton Foundation, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Forbes Magazine, and several early-stage startups. Years ago, I worked for Microsoft on the Windows Presentation Foundation team, where I was the Program Manager for the text and document layout portions of the platform.

I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Master's Degree in Human-Computer Interaction and a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science.

I was born in Luanda, Angola.
