In my younger years I would say that I had a passion for technology. I was a true techie. I have had the opportunity to travel and experience different cultures, or "different realities" as I like to say. Both prior to my coming to America and after. Each of these trips left me with new learnings and observations; I never returned the same, something always came back with me. I was always sensitive to the disadvantages many suffer throughout our world and, over the years, this feeling has only grown. This was one of the main drivers for writing my first novel. I firmly believe that all people have a great potential and that, while everyone ultimately is responsible for their own lives, some of us are born into better opportunities than others. Some folks only need a small helping hand.
So, anyway, I have been working for a Fortune 50 company for over 12 years, I do my best to stay abreast of the newest, baddest, most cutting edge technologies and things related. And in all honesty, it’s really impossible to know everything going on in the field of technology. I do my best though. I do read a lot about politics, economic issues, and world trends. I always try to keep an open mind and try to see what’s going on in the world. Some of my favorite sites are The New York Times, The Economist, The Huffington Post, Harvard Business Review, Inc., 30 Second MBA and a few others I can’t remember right now. I love languages and, as you might have guessed, interacting with folks from other cultures, it gets me pumped. I fluently speak Spanish and Portuguese.
Now, what other things? I have been blessed with a beautiful, intelligent and very independent fiancee and I spend a lot of time traveling between the US and Brazil.
Good luck in all your endeavors and God bless!

A Life as a Stock
The era of communication in which we currently live, along with the speed of globalization, is quickly transforming our world. While we have no way of knowing where will these trends take us in twenty or thirty years, we can picture a not-too-distant future in which the impact of current decisions and events plays a major role in the lives of ordinary people.
Young Rick McMahon has big dreams and is ready to take advantage of the opportunities of that world and of a global market integration called GeoOne. Unbeknownst to him, his world is about to become more exhilarating than he ever could have imagined.
Lara Brown is a motivated, well-respected reporter, covering the important events happening around the world. She explains the workings of this globalized system, seeking to offer an intelligent and unbiased view. She suddenly finds herself explaining a financial meltdown on a global scale, along with its many implications.
The financial meltdown and surrounding events covered by Lara now threaten Rick's life and dream, and only time will reveal the ultimate result. Can these two views of the world reconcile-and save Rick's dream in the process?
