BA in Social Communication with a major in Advertising and Media. I am preparing papers to achieve a master degree in Language and Technology.


I'm a Videomaker in Brazil since 2008. I direct, produce and edit films. I'm interested in collaborating filming Fedora events indeed.

Computer background

I was lucky to get from my hard-working parents a computer at the age of 8. I knew already how to use a typewriter quite well, so I started to unravel what a computer was. It was 1993 and I had at that time a 386DX 40Mhz 4MB RAM. I even feel a little nostalgic about those games in Basic language. :P I'm connected to the web since January 1996, but I am not an IT professional, despite having worked as an automation technician in a car industry from 2004 to 2007. I started experimenting with Linux distributions around 2002 when I bought a computer magazine that came with Red Hat Linux - before RHEL.

Between 2004 and 2011 I installed many distros, such as Mandriva, Ubuntu, Mint, Manjaro, OpenSuse, Kali and Debian. Fedora is my distro of choice since it's version 15 "Lovelock". In May 2016 I decided to sign the Fedora Project Contributor Agreement aiming to become active in the community, so here I am. Also in 2016 I started to learn a bit of Electronics, Arduino and Processing language too.
