I am both a Brazilian and an American (which makes me precisely neither).
Raised in Brazil, educated in the United States. I now live in Colorado.
I am currently employed by the University of Colorado Boulder within Planning Design and Construction. I think of myself as a “construction midwife”. My focus is on creating a culture of knowledge in the field – knowledge of what was designed, what is planned, and what the specific item or system delivery requires. My method is simple, make sure there is a viable path from plan to product.
Fundamentally, I believe that human beings are capable of achieving incredible results, if only they know how to take their dreams and form them into realities. I see myself as a vehicle to other’s success.
I believe big things that work are comprised of thousands of small things that work; I also believe in the Broken Windows Theory, and do not tolerate carelessness in the execution of the plan.
I maintain my artistic practice. It is not a separate part of me.
The edge between art and pragmatism is not as crisp as most would have you believe.
The pursuit of productivity, excellence and social beneficence, are expressions Love.
Our experience is what we make of it. Love is everywhere you find it, because it is you.
