Felipe holds a BC in Computer Science (2004) from Unesp and has master degree in Mechanical Engineering (2007) from USP (the most important university in Brazil with the better ranking in Latin America). During undergraduate and master degree he developed work in the field of pattern recognition (multilayer perceptron and Bayes classifier with multimodal and multidimensional gaussian distributions) and computer vision (including omnidirectional vision) for industrial robot. He also developed applications in the field of agricultural automation that uses microcontrolers and ISOBUS (a standard that uses CAN protocol for agricultural machinery automation) in a variable rate implement for precision agriculture.

He is an independent software developer, working with office automation. He has experience in several programming languages, using more frequently Go (golang) and JavaScript. He adopts Go for his primary language since its very first release in 2009 and developed with it software for business, blog/site management system with microservices architecture, a RPC like system and some loggers, see the Github page for more projects in Go. The most used environments are Linux and Mac OS.

Photography is his main hobby since childhood when he was able to carry it without dropping it on the floor. He became a professional photographer when he photographed his first wedding in 2013. He take portraits in Monte Verde, southern of Minas Gerais state in Brazil, decor photos of hotels and bed & breakfast, and child portraits. Sometimes he photographs nature.

He is a father and husband.
