I'm a Brazilian geek that doesn't like carnival and ran away from the sun and heat of Brazil to hide in the UK.

Even though I graduated on Business Management, IT has always been my passion. In 2015 I began my journey into the world of software testing and never looked back.

I started my career in testing as a grad tester for Centre4 Testing, now Ten10, and from them I learned the basics of everything testing: planning, documenting, reporting, automating, regressing, performing, and much more. However, it was working for Action for Children that I finally came to be able to call myself a tester.

At the moment my focus is on test automation, using Python 3 and Selenium Webdriver to automate test. My aim is to continue learning Python and other programming languages that will give me a little peak on the developer's world and help me understand their side of development.

As a good geek, I spend my free hours playing games, both electronic and tabletop, and reading books. But I've also been know for learning new languages, dancing tango and practicing swordfighting.

If you'd like to discuss the latest book I'm reading or get in touch about Python or test automation, feel free to contact me. You may also take a look on my Goodreads page or maybe drop by my twitter feed to find the latest news about technology, gaming and science to get my attention. You can find me on Facebook, but I must warn you: it's full of Brazilian rubbish ;)
