about

___________________________________

Currently living in Brazil (but everywhere when needed), I have an Associate’s Degree in Computer Science from Instituto Federal de Santa Catarina and also started a Bachelor’s Degree in Design from Universidade do Vale do Itajaí.

Since very young, I was always attracted by Arts and Business. The first one because of my contact with cartoons and videogames, building interest in illustration, writing and music. The second one because of my habit of reselling soccer and fantasy cards to my friends, building interest in negotiation, market and investment. Subjects that would only make real sense years after, but made part of my life from the very beginning.

At 15 I got accepted into IFSC, which expanded my perception and developed my interests into Design and Entrepreneurship. Three years later I choose the first option to apply for a university, but knowing that the second one would always be part of my life too.

Working since high school, I developed projects at some companies and with some people like IFSC Labs and Student Body, Tatticas Publicidade e Propaganda, Agência Propaga, Procave Investimentos e Incorporações, Perestroika, Aerolito, Renan Serrano (Trendt), Helene Hermes (Clan) and Vanderlei Santana (The Kumite), while working as a freelancer too. During this period I attended to some courses, immersions, workshops and talks at some institutions like FLAGCX (São Paulo), Aerolito (Porto Alegre), Perestroika (Porto Alegre), Atlas (Joinville) and TEDx (Blumenau and Florianópolis).

I also developed independently or with people that I admire some other projects like Likedoodles (clothing and accessories label), Could Be About (event production agency) that after became Algo (experience design and content creation studio), Banned (urban lifestyle multicultural collective), CCRR (relatively relevant content sharing discussion group), Perestour - Potencial Catarinense (Perestroika’s expansion prototype project) and Tresquartos (human based engineering, architecture and design pop-up studio).

For me all these areas and projects basically consists in develop the layer that connects complexity to people. And I'm all about doing it in a meaningful way. I utterly think there's not a kind of a project as I celebrate the lack of definition. Projects born and die and incredible things happens between it. The sweetspot is to be in or develop an environment to grow as a person and build amazing things with awesome people.

The last thing the world needs is more computer scientists, designers and entrepreneurs. The world needs people who give a damn.
