Short Biography

I live in Brasília, Brasil. I work as a cybersecurity professional, focused mainly on offensive security assessments and vulnerability discovery and analysis.

I came to Debian and Free Software after searching for a Unix-like operating system for my PC. I am a GNU/Linux user since 1998 and a Debian user since 2006. Through all those years, the work that thousands of volunteers have put in Debian has made my life easier whenever I had to install software with complex dependencies, deploy and integrate network services or extract the most out of the hardware I had at hand.

After years as a Debian user, I felt the need to give back to the project and help sustain its continued development. Thus, with the help of several brazilian DDs, since 2016 I began contributing with Debian, specially with packaging, adopting some packages and performing QA work.

My primary areas of interest are the security and sysadmin tools packaging. I also would like to contribute with the development of Debian tooling.
