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 regularly write things on my blog, Industrial Felt.

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

  • La ronde de nuit (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

  • El diario de Frida Kahlo (The Diary of Frida Kahlo) by Frida Kahlo
