I'm a Bachelor of Arts graduate from the Federal University of Juiz de Fora (UFJF), where I majored in Portuguese and Translation. For my undergraduate thesis, "The Abyss of the Original", I addressed Leminski's simultaneous bitranslation of Beckett's "Malone Dies" and "Malone Meurt". Within my academic program, I pursued topics in Classical Studies, Semiotics, Translation Theory, Computational Linguistics, and a range of other subjects.

But don't let my fall for the Babel Tower fool you, when I'm not lost in the world of language, I'm probably diving deep in some other world—overall the worlds of cinema, philosophy, and technology. Lately, I've been immersing myself in the realm of GNU Linux and Emacs, exploring the power of free software and self-hosting, and tinkering with different programming languages like Bash, Python, Elisp, and C to extend what I can do.

During my college days, I spent a year abroad at the University of Passau in Germany, where I attended Sprach- und Textwissenschaften and advanced my studies on Ekphrasis and Text-Image Relations. It was an incredible experience and really broadened my horizons in every sense—just as the breathtaking view of compound words longer than the Autobahn.

Since 2018, I've been maintaining this website to gather my interests and creations. And as eterno devir tells… there will always be more to come.
