Born in a lower middle class family in the city of Recife, the son of a seamstress mother who never finished high school and a father who never went to college, I always tried to create my own opportunities, taking initiatives to build my own success.
At the age of 16, I studied in a private school through a scholarship.
At the age of 18 I passed entrance exams at state and national universities in Brazil.
At the age of 20, without ever taking an English course in my life, I took the TOEFL test and did my first exchange at the University of Texas in Houston, USA.
At the age of 23 I graduated in Computer Engineering from the Federal University of Pernambuco.
At the age of 24 I was approved for PhD (without even having a Master's) at Indiana University and Columbia University in the city of New York, USA.
At the age of 25 I did a summer internship at FujiXerox, in the Sillicon Valley.
At the age of 26 I gave up my PhD studies and returned to Brasil with a Master's degree in Computer Science, because I had the dream of creating my own startup.
At the age of 26 I wanted to learn about management, so I entered the job market in a Big Four Consulting Firm , Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu.
At the age of 27 I opened my Startup , Ti.Saúde , capturing investment in less than 6 months of LLC, and today we are present in all states of Brazil.
I currently lead a team of 34 people and growing. continues...
