First I was interested in drawing when I was a child. I used to try to design futurist objects and since that I've never stop drawing. I discovered "Web Design" before the bubble burst +15 years ago. At that time it was a choice that left behind illustration, which became a hobby, but art still alive for me, but now in a mix with technology and design. As an artist I have participated in a couple of exhibitions and projects which made me earn some awards.

My academic background reflects my interests. I went to college in Fine Arts at Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG), a post-grad in Interaction Design at Catholic University of Minas Gerais (PUC Minas) and, lately, MA in Arts and Technology at UFMG.

In the past I had a digital agency for 5 years and I taught Prototyping at the Interaction Design programme at PUC Minas University during 4 years. I've been working at Google for +3 years, I used to work from Brazil office, and now I've just moved to work from their biggest campus in Mountain View, CA.

I'm fascinated by diverse things like tangible interfaces, physical computing, people centered design, free software, generative design, philosophy, nutrition, sports, animal rights, politics, graffiti and music. I've been vegan for 17 years and I love Arabic vegan food. Read Less
