Dear Reader,

Who am I, you might ask. It's a hard question that I don't think I can ever give an adequate answer. I'll start with a few facts:

  • Born in São Paulo, SP, Brazil
  • Living in Seattle, WA, USA
  • B.S. in Electrical Engineering with emphasis in Computer and Digital Systems from Escola Politécnica da Universidade de São Paulo
  • Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Oklahoma State University
  • Have been working at Amazon.com since October 2004

My hobbies are (in no particular order):

  • Working on random projects
  • Taking care of my garden
  • Singing in a choir - currently singing with the Seattle Jewish Chorale
  • Cooking - my favorite style is to try different things all the time and not be scared by any particular ingredient or technique (as long as it doesn't require buying very expensive equipment, like some of molecular gastronomy stuff)

That just gives you a frame of reference. In order to really answer your question, feel free to read my blog. It will be more up-to-date with my self-ness than I can ever hope to capture on this static page.
