My background is as a tech-startup entrepreneur in Brazil and Latin America with connections in Silicon Valley. I started programming for the web and building local-commerce websites at 12 years old and kept working with technology since then.
Prior to joining Palantir Technologies as a Deployment Strategist (Business Development position) in June 2016, I was the founder of boo-box (sold in 2015), a social media ad network reaching 67 million people every month in Brazil, listed by FastCompany as one of the top 5 most innovative advertising companies of the world; and co-founder of Heartbit, a physical exercises reward program tracking 400,000 km of activities every day, listed by Consumidor Moderno magazine as one of the top 100 most innovative companies of Brazil.
I am the opening story of “Brilliant, Crazy, Cocky”, Sarah Lacy’s (TechCrunch, Pando) latest book about high-impact entrepreneurs. I did Strategic Marketing Management (ExEd) at Stanford University and was a speaker on conferences as the United Nation’s ECOSOC in NYC, The Economist – Content Disruptors, The Next Web and La Red Innova.
Married, cyclist, nerd and geek, I’m a fan of zombies, sci-fi, robots and Brazilian hip-hop culture.
