Transitioning from being a Physics, Mathematics, and Robotics teacher in Brazil, I’m now diving into the exciting world of tech as a trainee at CodeYourFuture in the UK. I’m shifting from teaching to coding, fueled by a love for learning and a passion for helping others.

In my previous role as a teacher, I led engaging initiatives such as monthly robotic exhibitions for over 100 students and physics projects for community events. I introduced innovation to teaching, resulting in improved student scores.

I kicked off my professional life spending a solid 10 years as a designer and production manager. That gig got me deep into graphic design and leadership, where I learned how to tackle problems head-on. This experience set me up nicely for what came next, bringing a bunch of handy skills to the mix.

Currently, I immerse myself in the CodeYourFuture boot camp, enhancing my software development skills, learning about best practices in tech, workflows, and paving my way into the tech industry.

Beyond coding, I am a traditional RPG player and PC gamer who loves sunny walks and coffee shop chats.
Oh, and my cat? He is my Family.
