  •  Education and Languages

    Education and Languages

    Born in Brazil, raised in a european family, I was raised bi-lingual, until I started working with written materials, only in the English language, at the age of 12. I speak all three languages with no noticeable accent and am fully able to communicate in a business environment in them. Spanish and French are a result of trainings in school, as well as easy adaptation from my native Portuguese.

    At a late age in my career, I saw the advantages of progressing in a non-technical major. While I am a self-tought technical enthusiast and would consider myself much more advanced than the average person in both software- and hardware-development, I realized that the business side of things was much harder to be self-taught, which is why I am going to finish my Bachelor in Business Administration at the University of Applied Sciences of Munich at the end of 2017.

    In the past, I have taken part in numerous workshops to specialize in both Agile methods (mainly Scrum, most notably at Bor!s Gloger) as well as applied business administration, which have allowed me to keep up-to-date with the most modern methodoligies. In Brazil, I studied at the Swiss School of São Paulo, which gave me a focus in an above-average international education and allowed me to get in touch with many languages, all of which I use in my professional life today.

    Passions | Hobbies

    Aside from my family, which I think would miss its purpose if I had to mention it here, these are the things that move my life when I am not at work.

    Do you have any questions? I would love to discuss them in a personal interview!
