I am a human being with nomadic, wandering, hacking, artistic features, and a facilitator of chaordic processes. I am an explorer of internal and external spaces and spirits, a multifacet animal. I am currently dividing my time between São Paulo (Brazil) and its beautiful north coast.

Nowadays I work with startups, indigenous populations, investors and social businesses, to nurture and engage more impactful communities, technology and new processes.  I have been working with designing narratives for companies, helping them to understand and design better concepts and technology, and to achieve more positive impact and focus on positive narratives for the planet and the people. I act as a strategic advisor, concept- and community developer, a process designer and a connector.

 

Which team and when did you graduate? 

Team 22, in 2018

 

What have you been doing since you graduated as a Kaospilot?

Nowadays I work mainly with process design, concept development and community engagement, focusing on the technology sector.

Among the initiatives that I’ve created together with partners and co founders are www.openflowlabs.com (a software engineering company) and www.fruitsteps.com (helping you and your team design better processes).

Some examples of my work include: a system for Social and Environmental (and governance) Impact measurement and assessment, a few technological gadgets to improve people’s and companies’ technology base and innovation processes.

I have had a deep involvement with impact projects such as Maternativa www.maternativa.com.br (which is a support network for entrepreneurial moms, and asupplementing educational program (www.compredasmaes.com.br) for the members to have access to resources and development in their career and life.

I would also like to mention Bloco Lab (www.blocolab.com) , which is a accelerator for social businesses and a disruptive narrative agency, and a project to co-design a Visitation Plan of 60+ indigenous populations in High Juruá River.

 

What is important for you in your job?

To be able to be a catalyst of change in the culture structure of Brazil, and create resilient businesses that can nurture a better relationship between people and neutralize colonialism, racism, sexism and its consequent sicknesses.

 

What major learnings would you point out from your experience that have shaped you as a leader? 

Failures. It is a magical and humbling moment to realize that sometimes, being drowned in apparent shit takes you closer to the diamonds hiding there.

 

What is your biggest source for inspiration right now?

It is and I believe it will always be nature, in all its shapes, colors and feelings.

 

What would be an example of a learning or an experience from your time at Kaospilot that has been important to you?

I wouldn’t be able to express in words how much the humility that I’ve learned with my team and in my time at the Kaospilots helps me and improves me.

Among many practical things, the amazingly open space that I’ve felt gives me courage to try and replicate the same feelings to others.

 

What is a piece of advice that you would like to give future Kaospilot graduates? 

NO advice… More like a Fuck off message: Pop the bubble, leave your craddle, explore your own shit and then question all of it. Fuck other people, get out of your gardens and go somewhere truly far from what you already know. And PLEASE: remember the fucking tools, they’re going to save your life!
