About me

Hey 👋, my name is Gabriel. I’m a brazilian programmer, designer, and activist. Welcome to my little cozy web corner!


I’m interested in FLOSS, Distributed Systems, Software Engineering, and Functional Programming. Mainly working with Linux, Rust, Haskell, Postgres, Nix.

I’ve been into computers, science and math since I was little. I love Linux, Free Software, CLI programs, and design.

Outside of computing, I’m a huge fan of space and science fiction genres (games, books, artwork). Currently reading the Dune book series!

I love animals (I have five cats and a dog), the planet, and the people who live in it.


I currently work full time in Magazine Luiza’s technology division, LuizaLabs, as an Site Reliability Engineer. Our team is currently building an Object Storage solution for Magalu Cloud.

I’m also working towards a Computer Science M.Sc. degree at University of São Paulo’s Institute of Mathematics and Computer Sciences, under the Software Engineering Lab. My current research is around Software Sustainability in Open Source projects. I also currently lead our institute’s FLOSS extracurricular student group, GELOS.


Some of my current tools of choice are: NixOS, Hyprland, Neovim, NeoMutt.
