about me

I am a proud graduate of UC Santa Cruz, where I completed a four-year university degree in three years. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science: Computer Game Design and was placed in the top 15% of my academic group, earning Dean’s Honors quarterly. There, I gained experience leading both game developers and filmmakers in my classes and extracurricular activities. Some of the projects I've worked on include board games, video games, short films, and UI/UX design.

Since college, I further developed an interest in User Experience and have sought out professional certificates in the field by taking UX Design classes led by Google employees.

I’m half Brazilian and half American, born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, CA, making me a native speaker of English and Portuguese. In my free time I enjoy making product reviews on Youtube, watching the latest movies, and raising my two kittens.
