Ricardo José Vaz Alves Monteiro, best known in the world of football by Tarantini, was born in Baião (1983). His passion for football took him to the age of 8 to start practicing the sport at Amarante Futebol Clube.

In 2001 he entered the University of Beira Interior in the Sports Science Course. Still in 2001 and until 2006 he started his career as a football professional wearing the Sporting Clube da Covilhã jersey.

In 2005 he completed the Degree in Sports Sciences and in 2006 the Degree in Sports Sciences in the Physical Education and School Sports branch. For one year he taught at the Basic Education School of the 2nd and 3rd Cycles of Teixoso. He has always been concerned with building a dual career.

The 2006/2007 season was spent at Gondomar, the following season at Portimonense and in 2008 he signed for Rio Ave Futebol Clube, remaining as a professional footballer in I Liga until today.

2014 was a great year on a personal and professional level, because, in addition to proving once again the possibility of reconciling careers, concluded the Master's thesis in Sports Sciences at the University of Beira Interior, Rio Ave went to the final of the Portugal and League Cup; he fought for the Cândido de Oliveira Super Cup and also participated in the Europa League group stage.

During this time, he has been concerned with remaining connected to research, collaborating with the CreativeLab research team, CIDESD_UBI in the collection and processing of data for research projects in football game analysis.
