I have 18 years of experience in telecommunications, banking, credit, retail, insurance, research, government, civil construction, and start-ups. Having had a wide variety of roles including backend developer, quality engineer, devops, architect, full stack, big data engineer, research software engineer, and frontend developer.

My main interests are NLP, Semantic Web, GIS, Workflow Management Systems, Data Journalism, and Open Source (including Community Management and Developer Relations). I am fluent in English and Portuguese. I have an intermediate level of Spanish and of Japanese, and basic of French and Te Reo M=aori.

I value the impact of the project (e.g. work on climate change, accessibility, inclusion, open data, disease control, education, research, etc.) over technology and salary. I am a New Zealand tax resident, able to work in person in New Zealand, Australia, and Latin America - otherwise visa sponsorship is required.
