I am a software engineer passionate about user interface design and the free and open source development model.
Since 2009 I have contributed to the GNOME community in various fronts. I started as a translator, but later I got engaged into marketing and outreach activities by organizing and speaking about GNOME at free software conferences.
As a result of my enjoyment of the role, I decided to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at Universidade Federal de Pelotas.
A couple of years later I applied and was accepted in the Google Summer of Code internship program where I learnt the essentials of software engineering by working in the GNOME community during the summer.
