Hey!

I'm a Software Engineer initially trained in Electrical Engineering and Control Systems.

  • I currently work at Tarmac, a software consultancy from Minneapolis, US, as a Senior Software Engineer. I deal mainly with Rails and React.
  • 🔭 Up until 2022 I worked at Mercúrio, a company I co-founded in Brazil that specializes in digital repositories and digitization projects for Cultural Heritage Institutions. I wrote most of our internal tools and customized open source repository software—like AtoM, Archivematica, DSpace, Collective Access—to our client's needs.
  • 🌱 I’m currently:
    • Studying PostgreSQL internals and optimization strategies 📇
    • Rebuilding my home office and personal workshop 🛠️

  • ⚡ Fun facts:
    1. I studied Control Engineering at the University of São Paulo but ended up working in software development. Turns out the knowledge I developed there was useful when I designed and built a scanner for large maps while working at Mercúrio.
    2. I spent one year as a Computer Engineering exchange student in Arizona, USA (at ERAU). Due to the lower amount of coursework there compared to Brazil, I spent a lot of time reading and studying about computers, programming and contributing to open source communities. I still have notes written during that time that come in handy.
    3. Most of my early social life started as part of a Pokémon community in Brazil, and I joined the local league as a Tournament Organizer from 2007 up until 2018. I met my wife in one of these tournaments—she ended up becoming a National Champion.
    4. Between 2016 and 2018 I was invited by The Pokémon Company as a Judge for several international tournaments. Thus I can say I visited Australia, Europe and some parts of the US on Pikachu's dime.
