I am a Computer Science graduate from North Carolina State University.
I am really interested in how computer technology can change the world in good ways.
Thus, I am always reading, learning, creating prototypes of cool innovative technologies.

Innovative Technologies?

Right now, I have three main areas of interest:
xR - Virtual and Augmented Reality.
AI/ML - Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
Blockchain - Decentralized solutions that empower people.


I was born and raised in Brazil.
When I was 16, my father got an opportunity to work in the US.
My parent's were faced with a a difficult decision. Should they move to the US?
That meant, a new language, new culture, being away from the rest of the family, and many other difficulties...
...I am really grateful to them for taking the hard path. It has brought me innumerous opportunities in life.
This gives me drive to always strive to do better.
