Pôrto Alegre, BR



I am an architect and BIM Coordinator from Brazil. 

I graduated in Architecture and Urbanism in 2020 from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), one of the best universities in Brazil. During my graduation, I worked as an intern in architecture offices since the second year of the program, focusing on gaining as much experience as possible. I have also done a year abroad, studying architecture in the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) and working with Carlos Ferrater in the OAB office in Barcelona.

Since 2016 I've been working with BIM, mainly with Revit. From 2019 on the use of the BIM technology has been my focus in architecture. After my graduation, I sought to specialize in this technology, starting a postgraduate program in BIM Management at Zigurat, Barcelona.

In the last year, I have strated working as a BIM Manager in an office from Brazil, working with architectural, structural and MEP design.

I am a person who is always looking for new challenges and I am very interested in the development and management of BIM in architecture offices, the creation of standards and the possibilities of process automation and parameterization that BIM technology offers.

I am a goal oriented, challenge seeker, and flexible person. I believe
my problem-solving, organization and teamwork abilities are assets in any position.
