Graduated in late 2009 as “Architect and Urbanist” from UFRJ (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro), which is one of the best architectural universities in Brazil. I have almost ten years of experience in the architectural area. I received a professional title called “Buildings Technician”, acquired in late 2002 when my work experience began. Since late 2011 I have been working in a Brazilian architectural studio as “Project Manager”. I came to US in April 2013 in order to act as an “International Representative” with the main objective of starting a partnership between both countries' companies. Now I'm looking for an opportunity to improve and expand my professional skills and knowledge.
