I was born and raised in Brazil. At age of 13 I move to Venezuela due my father's position working for the U.N. I currently leave in the U.S.A. so I'm a tri-lingual professional (English, Portuguese and Spanish) with dual citizenship status (U.S. and Brazil). During the time I was doing a M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering I also studied French at the Pontifical Catholic of Rio de Janeiro. I'm not fluent as in the other 3 languages but I can read and understand a lot when I'm surrounded by such wonderful language! And along came Italian in the same way as French...
I was born in Belo Horizonte (the capital of the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil). During my teens I lived in Maracay, Venezuela where I studied part of Middle School and graduated from High School. Then I returned to Brazil to go to University. There I obtained B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering. During the M.Sc. I lectured in 2 Universities (The Military Institute of Engineering and Universidade Estacio de Sa. In that time I also worked at Multitel Microelectronics developing Integrated Circuits for the Military, Automobile and Telecommunication Industries. After that, I spent around 3 years in the R&D arena, mainly developing Integrated Circuits utilizing Thick and Thin Film Technologies and Telecommunication equipment such as Radio Transceivers, Optical Transmitters and Repeaters, Satellites, Multiplexers, Antennas and Cables. Then I realized that spending my professional life, cloistered inside a lab, concentrated in devices and components was not for me. I really enjoy it but I was missing a more humanistic side of life so I decided that with my technical background, it was time to move to the commercial side of the technology. So I spent around 3 years in Systems Engineering, working side-by-side with Sales teams until I moved to a more commercial approach: interacting with people in order to understand their dream of a better life, doing my best to provide technology solutions to help them achieve their goals is my passion! I like to analyze their needs, match it with solutions and provide results, always aiming to exceed their expectations!!!
My passion for Telecommunications in all its forms is my professional motto! Satellites, Microwave Links, Broadband, Wireless, Wireline, WiFi, Fiber Optics, IoT, Cloud, Signalling, Connectivity, Media and Network simply fascinates me! Telecommunications is a unique and fantastic way to bring the world closer!!!
