About me & my work:

I am a product designer, design teacher at PUC-Rio university for the last 18 years, a serial dreamer and an entrepreneur . I am tuned to my dreams and try to always follow them

I believe that it makes sense only to design what I like, hang with people that I can connect with and make business with good and interesting people .

My latest project is the scanning of the Christ Statue in Rio de Janeiro in order to create perfect replicas of it. The video of the first part of the scanning project will be released by Pix4D (one of our partners in this project), in their website. I also intend to produce a 1:1 replica of the statue's bust in rapid prototyping, to be displayed during the olympics in 2016. With the size of 29m x 10m it may be the biggest object in the world printed through laser sintering.

I am planning to put together a project that involves the high quality scanning of "Christ the Redeemer" statue in Rio and then produce a 1:1 model of it, cut by its chest (28 m from finger point to finger point x 9m high) handle an exposition inside it and display it for visitation in Rio during the olympic games.

My further goal is to get enough money to produce a 36" aluminum sailboat and move my office to it.
