Hi, I’m Ivo Santiago 👋
I live in Belo Horizonte, where I code and have fun with Noah.

Based on what I did as a kid, no one would ever expect a carrier in the software industry. I was raised in a small town where I spent most of the time on a farm and didn't have internet access at home until I was 17. Most of my time was around cows, horses, or practicing sports.

When it was time to pick a college major, it came as a surprise to my family me deciding to do computer science. Ive played video games and I've been fascinated by technology. How could I not be?

Despite my major, another place I spent a lot of time was the sports center. I've never been fit but the nerd side of physical training fascinated me. I like to try all kinds of sports and I'm always looking for new challenges. My favorites are judo and swimming.

After college, I lived in Dublin, Ireland, for a year. After that I moved to the US for six months and then back to Brazil. I've been here ever since. Today, I'm the father of Noah. He's the best thing that ever happened to me. We have a lot of fun together.
