I started out as a Media Manager in an Advertising Agency and ended up as an entrepreneur on Social Innovation in the non-profit sector and small companies in my home country, Brazil. My journey was not linear, and I had different job positions in different sectors, in different countries. I am/was a teacher, facilitator, entrepreneur, and project manager in Brazil, England, Netherlands, France, and the USA, and this journey helped me learn and develop a lot.

I am passionate about studying People, Cultures, Sociology, Diversity, Sustainability, Methodologies, Trends, Future, and Innovation. When I lived in the Netherlands, I accomplished a Master's Degree in Imagineering.

I co-founded Co-Viva, a Co-Creation and Innovation Consultancy in São Paulo. We have been teaching and mentoring refugee entrepreneurs in a project founded by the United Nations. In this scenario, entrepreneurship has become a tool for Social Change and Innovation.

When I’m not working, I am planning trips or riding my bike around São Paulo to discover new restaurants, street food, or street food fairs.
