About me

I'm a 27 years old programmer by profession. I was born and live in Maceió, Alagoas, Brasil. Maceió is known as Water Paradise, because its wonderful beaches and lagoons.

I am married and have two beautiful children. I work for a sugar/alcohol factory.

Open Source

I started using Linux in 1997 at School. One year later, i was responsible for an local ISP, by migrating its servers to Linux. My love for Linux and Open Source softwares has grew up from that epoch.


I started using Ubuntu in 2005, with Breezy. It saved me a lot of time by doing what i had to do manually in other distributions. So, definitely Ubuntu is my distro!

In the spirit of Open Source model, i like to contribute to the community. Some Ubuntu-related contributions are:
