Global Shaper, Rio de Janeiro Hub,

As a kid, I loved to disassemble and create new stuff with toys and electronics. That might be why I became an Automation Engineer, which gave me an important toolkit to navigate through different areas, circles and ideas.

In 2011, I cofounded a company to develop interactive media with state-of-the-art technology. Later, I moved to Benfeitoria, a social business developed to generate impact through collaborative projects.

I then went on to found Bando, a group in service of the development of crowdfunding in Brazil.

My biggest goal now is to use the technical knowledge to drive social and cultural change in Brazil.
