I grew up in São Paulo and live in Brooklyn. I've been a journalist, community organizer, and worn myriad hats at a handful of tech startups. In 2012, I co-founded goTenna and started as its CEO. (Our mission statement is here.) 

I try to stay active in progressive politics, and read every chance I get. Here's a list of books I recommend:

  • The Counterlife by Philip Roth
  • Democracy by Joan Didion
  • Post Office by Charles Bukowski
  • Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee
  • Pale Fire by Vladimir Nabokov
  • Regarding the Pain of Others by Susan Sontag
  • Conquest of the Useless by Werner Herzog
  • Night Rounds by Patrick Modiano
  • The Sellout by Paul Beatty
  • Are You My Mother? by Alison Bechdel
  • Toward a Psychology of Awakening by John Welwood
  • The Diary of Frida Kahlo by Frida Kahlo
