About Vinny Moreira

I’m Vinny Moreira — a self-starter entrepreneur and web developer living in Los Angeles. I’ve been learning about techonoly and building websites since 2004. From building WordPress websites and plugins to building complex web applications, I love everything that has to do with making the web a better place.

In 2011 after working for many years as web developer for an industry-leading medical marketing company, I founded Vimo Designs - my own website design and development company.

The programming languages I find myself working with most of the time are javascript, PHP, HTML and CSS. However, I also have experience with WordPress, jQuery, bootstrap, unsemantic, meteor.js, mongodb, and Hugo.

The main reason I chose this career of a web developer is that I realized as technology evolved I would be constantly learning and growing. This infinite learning experience to me is priceless!

When I’m not working, I like to travel, take photos, play the guitar, and exercise.


Photography is a hobby that I have always loved. Capturing breath-taking moments in life with a camera is fascinating to me. I enjoy mostly shooting outdoor - everything that has to do with nature, beaches, waterfalls, and animals. Check out my photos.


Travelling is by far my number one passion. I believe that we can learn so much by exploring new places and by being exposed to other cultures. I’m grateful to have had a chance to travel to a few places around the globe and to have met so many incredible people. Here is a list of the countries I have visited.

  • Brazil
  • Canada
  • China
  • Dubai
  • Egypt
  • Japan
  • Mexico
  • Panama
  • Philippines
  • Puerto Rico
  • South Korea
  • Thailand

My interest in music started a long time ago when I was 11 years old in Brazil. My friends and I decided to start a Samba band and we each picked an instrument. I immediately knew I wanted to play cavaco even though I knew it would be the hardest instrument to learn. After taking lessons for about 1 year, I went off to learn more on my own and taught myself how to play the guitar. I have been playing both the cavaco and guitar ever since then.
