This post is part of an ongoing series of Rangers introductions. See Ranger Index (Who is Who?) for more details.
Who you are?
I’m originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, now an American citizen. I have lived in the US for the past 15 years, having worked in Wall Street for most of that time as a Lead Developer in the .Net / Java space. I’ve joined Microsoft in 2011 as a Premier Field Engineer in the ALM space and just recently moved to an Application Development Manager position in the Public Sector.
My passions, besides Application Development, Architecture and Project Management and my family include flying, snowboarding and snorkeling.
What makes you “tick”?
Technology and how we can use it to make the world better around us. One of my passions is to solve problems, make processes and organizations better by applying technology the right way.
Where you live?
I live in Frisco, TX which is 25 miles NE of the Microsoft Office in Las Colinas. This is in the Dallas metro area.
Why are you active in the Rangers program?
I just wanted to contribute more to the community and be more involved in the team that is the leader in the ALM space.
What is the best Rangers project you worked in and why?
I just joined, so I haven’t had a chance to work on any of the projects yet, but definitely looking forward to do so.
