I’m a Brazilian with a Bsc in Computer Science from Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar), Brazil. I’ve been working for more than 14 years in software development with focus on web applications and integration systems. I have experience in leading and coaching of technical teams, working as software engineer for Java technology. I have been very attached to agile methodologies, processes of development and design of products, such as scrum and lean, as well as, support and software consulting, very keen on providing practical solutions for clients.

I’ve spent my last year improving my software developer skills in the challenging Financial Area in the second largest financial centre of North America, Toronto - Canada.

Most of my career was developed at Synchro, leading provider of tax solution in Brazil. I had several experiences that gave me technical and personal growth, always contributing to the company’s business. My last project was a migration of the product to Cloud environment, using Microservices Architecture and integrating with other solutions, creating a single platform solution.

I’m passionate about new tecnologies and software development architectures, and looking into the future, I intent to use all the knowledge acquired during the years to become a better developer and software architect and help businesses figure out which technologies may be more fitting to the problems they are proposed to solve.

Work aside, I’m a photography enthusiast and I use this passion to boost my creativity, capturing images that have impact and feelings. I always try to use this creativity to adding to logical thinking of software development.
