I grew up in Brasília, a planned city built to serve as Brazil's capital. There I completed my undergrad and masters in economics. From Brasília I moved to Evanston and, finally, Saint Louis. During my time in Kellogg, I was exposed to strategy and decided to pursue it as my area of study. I decided to apply to Washington University in St. Louis after reading “A knowledge-based theory of the firm: the problem-solving perspective” by Jackson Nickerson and Todd Zenger.
When I am in Brasília I like to practice Rappel in one of the many waterfalls near the city. Since I haven't found a good spot to practice Rappel near Saint Louis, I am dedicating myself to weightlifting and cooking (after all, you need to maintain the caloric equilibrium!).
