I was born in Porto Alegre, the land of Chimarrão and Churrasco, where the people are known as Gaúchos. At 21 years of age I got my degree in Computer Science from PUCRS. In 2011, I graduated in the PUCRS/Ubisoft's Game Development specialization program and obtained my master degree in 2012 (PUCRS/ Visiting Scholar at Carnegie Mellon University).
I moved to the United States in 2013 as Co-Director of Interactive Media Initiatives, shortly after I joined Schell Games, where I had the opportunity to work as Senior Engineer and be the tech lead of a diverse set of projects with focus on VR/AR. Today, I am the Founder of Maned Wolf Games and a Lead Gameplay Engineer at Bad Robot Games.
