Hello! My name is Murilo, I am a Brazilian technologist (or a full stack developer if you prefer).
I am profoundly interested in education (as in learning experiences) and technology.
I started studying Physics in 2007 at my hometown’s university (UFES). There I did internships working as an educator in a program for children at social risk and at a science museum located in an underpriviledged neighborhood. I also got involved with the modeling laboratory where I helped to develop software simulations to be used by teachers in the classroom. Eventually I dropped the course because becoming a developer was more urgent to me.
As a developer, I worked in a range of places that in a way or another explored the possibilities and impacts of modern technology in our lives including software houses, government’s culture department, projection mapping art collective, running my own startup and later becoming Science Hack Day Ambassador.
In 2014, I moved to Sweden where I worked as a creative technologist in a digital agency, as a consultant for a strategic design firm and first got involved with a non profit organization called Kids Hack Day. While volunteering at Kids Hack Day I had the pleasure to develop some of the features of Strawbees and Quirkbot, toys designed to engage kids in perceiving that we can interact with technology in a more creative and active way, rather than passively consuming it.
In 2019 I went back to work (and play) with my beloved friends at Strawbees where I play different roles developing software and content with educational focus.
