I’m passionate by technology and all the world about digital information science.
In 1996, I participated of the first develop internet company in Paraíba, Brazil (eradigital.com.br), having sold my cotes before the burst of the internet bubble.
In 2000, I created a company called Daterra Design e Tecnologia focused on design, pre-press and digital marketing.
In 2009, I participated of the process of merger between Daterra and 6PSgroup companies as a founder and manager. Then, I became the Commercial Director for 6PS account in Brazil, serving some clients such as Folha de São Paulo, IBM, Vale, Whirlpool, GloboTec and more.
In 2012, managing a team of experts in software programming we created our first webcast platform and event live broadcast to IBM client (planetainteligente.tv). I’ve been responsible for commercial relationship with IBM Brazil until April, 2015.
In 2013, we expanded our business to NY and then we got to attend big companies such as GPJ.com e IBM USA. In that moment, we created an independent project, the hackhands.com. startup, that becomes our big project.
