I grew up in Santa Teresa, the most charming neighborhood in Rio. If you find yourself in the area, I strongly recommend catching a cable car up the hill to spend the afternoon drinking beer and eating pastel de feijoada at Bar do Mineiro.
I support Flamengo, Brazil’s most popular soccer team.
I go to Búzios as often as I can. It’s a small town near Rio with white sand beaches that I never get tired of.
I love Brazil and I could tell you a lot more about it. But I’m also a designer and I don’t want to make this column taller than the others.
Since the beginning of my career, I have had one eye on graphic design and the other on technology. During many years I was the one who delivered a book from the designs to the print production, and a website from the layouts to the production code.
Nowadays, I no longer design printings, but I use grid, typography, hierarchy, rhythm and composition every single day. I do not code for production anymore, but I prototype everything I design and work closely with developers to figure out the best solutions from design and development perspectives.
I joined Work & Co in 2015 as one of the very first employees in our Brazil office. I helped the company establish itself in Rio. After a year and a half, I moved to New York to work at the company’s Brooklyn headquarters.
