who

GAME PRODUCER

I always loved to develop games, since I was a little kid. This passion turned into a profession, and now I am credited in more than 20 games for Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Windows 8, Steam and consoles in various positions.

ENTREPRENEUR

Having founded some companies over the years, this experience came together on the formation of Industria de Jogos, my current “dream company with a mission”, and also led me to join several startup boards to help share the passion and business of creating games.

CONTENT PRODUCER

I love to learn and share knowledge, and that’s why I write about the Brazilian game industry at Industria de Jogos, have an Youtube channel about everything gamedev, and am very active in giving speeches, workshops, and gamejam mentorings all over the country.

BIZDEV

Being in the tech industry for such a long time has at least one benefit – you get to know many people. So I always try to help identify connections that create good businesses for companies in and out of the Brazilian market!

Alegretti is not only one of the greatest professionals I had the honor to work with, but one of the greatest person. He has excellent tech skills, he knows how to handle people, never too hard on them, allways friendly and yet having a firm grip letting none fall behind. He allways keep his wits about him and never let down to anger or frustration, making the team go at the worst of the weathers. There is no telling how much I admire him and working with him was one of my best experiences in life.
