Hi, I'm Guilherme

linkedintwitterlinkedin

Deeply passionate about technology and everything that it implies. Always on the lookout for ways to "put a ding in the universe".

I like to think of myself as a technologist, in the sense that I have a passion for solving problems and a general curiosity about everything and anything. Technology, for me, is a constructive tool for society and I believe that if we all come together, we can all build a better, brighter future for everyone.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
