I was born in the USA and by the age of 16 had experienced living in 5 different states with my family in the US. We then moved to Brazil where I started my first company. After studying at a Brazilian high school, and competing with other native students, I was able to achieve a level of cultural, scientific and linguistic knowledge that allowed me to pass the entrance exams of one of the best universities in Brazil. I was able to pass several times over two years, changing my major (the student has to choose their major before even entering the university) from physics, to industrial design, to network engineering and finally finding business administration as the best fit for my love of people, technology, design, and strategy.
I have worked with social media over the last ten years, first applying my knowledge as an intern at the Brazilian space agency while simultaneously working on various consulting projects for other companies. Afterwards, I was then hired to apply this and marketing research and analysis tools during my work with I-9, a design firm. I have graduated this year from the university of Brasilia, after completing the first project ever published at the university using an agent-based computer model to predict behavior in an organization. I am currently working on several digital marketing projects for various corporate clients in Brasilia. This experience as a digital marketing consultant has given me experience dealing with clients in English and in Portuguese while providing necessary documents, dealing with people, making sales and providing reliable tech support.
