Hey there, visitor!

Thanks for visiting my leadership blog.

I'm on a mission to build the future of television at Pluto TV, leading a team of incredible talented software engineers for the Apple platform.

Here you will find my thoughts and opinions about how to lead a team of software engineers effectively.

My Mission on Earth

I'm on a mission to build the best possible free television app for the Apple platform at Pluto TV 🍎. My work leverage my vision and desire to bring to more and more people access to entertainment and information via the internet, for free.

I write about my intuition and thoughts on leadership at my other blog, Tech Lead Zone 👨‍💻; the future of (remote) work, relationships and the digital world at Next Decade Online 🔮; my manifesto and insights on how to bring more people to the internet at More People Online (en) and Mais Gente Online (pt) 🙌.

My company's blog, Ghost Ship Tech 👻🛳, is where I publish my published projects and applications. Rolenator is my personal curation of parties and night life in São Paulo 🕺, with a nerdy twist. Meu Pote de Ouro 💰 is where I publish how I honestly organize my finances as a software engineer, and how I advice my friends on money (only in portuguese).

Opinions posted on this site and the others I own are mine to share, they do not reflect the point of view of Pluto TV or ViacomCBS.
