Building meaningful software that makes a difference in people's life is my primary driving passion. I love photography, not because it's cool, but because it allows me to inspire other people to follow their dreams, to travel, to discover new places and to enjoy our magnificent nature.
Photography is a tool that allows me to bring beautiful places, which I have the privilege to see with my own eyes, to people that may not be able to see it in person. Photography opens the door for people to experience a new world through my lenses.
As a software engineer, I'm able to contribute to many things that may make a difference in peoples' lives. The work I do in open source software allows me to help other engineers achieve their goals and hopefully makes their life a little easier in the process. My work at Neighborly as an engineer is providing better ways for people to invest directly in the places they live, work, play and care about.
I grew up in a small city in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, which is where my family got our first computer. I was 15 years old at the time and I fell in love with it. Since then, I have been on a computer almost every day learning new things, developing software, creating photography or helping others through open source software.
I hope I can inspire you to explore our amazing world, to enjoy life, to contribute with open source software and maybe even learn programming.
