About me

  • My proudest professional achievement

    My proudest professional achievement started around 2009 when I joined AIESEC (at Vitória Federal University, UFES) as a volunteer with the objective of changing the world by changing myself by traveling abroad (exchange). Long history short. I applied for a software developer internship at GaiaX company in Tokyo, Japan. The opportunity was opened to any AIESEC member in 127 countries. The selection process lasted six months and in the end, I was chosen to travel to Japan to join the web development team as an intern. That experience gave me the professional (and why not say, personal) base that I have today. Recently (2017) I rejoin the GaiaX team working with the research, creation, and development of the project.

  • How I can be helpful?

    I have a balanced combination of creativity and a logical mind that can be helpful to solve logic issues in a creative way or add some logic to creation. I never want to stop learn (the reason why I like my job) and make things (or people's lives) better. Also, I have a good eye for research and the talent to understand complicated technical details.

  • Plans to the future

    Being a developer in a world full of technology is certainly a privilege. As a web developer, I have the opportunity to imagine, create, and share my ideas coded as web applications with unimaginable freedom. My goal is to work with people who believe in ideas and insights because that is the other half of the equation and how is balanced. After all technical understanding, creativity has to prevail to build successful projects.

  • Weak points

    I don’t have fast (or memorized) answers for tough issues (or documentation contents) but, given a little time and dedication, I can work my way out of any problem.

    In addition to learning what was the basis of my technical knowledge today writing the code of my final graduation work in python was a big plus for my career. In the project (or "game") I try to emulate some network layers with Python (including routers, switches, and network cards) until it is possible to send and receive a "PING" signal. The challenge is to configure the network correctly to send and receive data (PING) and then learn a little about how a computer network works. (
