So, who am I ?

Egyptian Dad, Greek Mum, born and raised in Brazil.

Marketeer graduated at Fundacao Armando Alvares Penteado (FAAP, Sao Paulo, Brazil, 1996)

Master of Digital Media from Queensland University of Technology (QUT, Brisbane, Australia, 2002).

Languages supported: Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish and English

Why am I here?

Working as a Technical Translator at Red Hat Asia-Pacific (2002-2006), I got amused by the collaborative work revolution and the open source business model.

Thus, I decided getting involved initially with the Brazilian community because I believe the Fedora project values can be powerful tools to address critical social issues in the country, i.e. the Digital Divide.

Now, back to my home country, I'm working as the Marketing Manager for Red Hat Brasil and also giving support to Fedora initiaitves in other Latin American countries. Please check:
