In his younger years, C. M. had passion for technology. He was a true techie. He had the opportunity to travel and experience different cultures, or “different realities” as he likes to say. Both prior to his coming to America and after. Each of these trips left him with new learnings and observations; He never returned the same, something always came back with him. He was always sensitive to the disadvantages many suffer throughout our world and, over the years, this feeling has only grown. This was one of the main drivers for writing his first novel. He firmly believes that all people have a great potential and that, while everyone ultimately is responsible for their own lives, some are born into better opportunities than others. Some folks only need a small helping hand.
He has been working for a Fortune 50 company for over 12 years and does his best to stay abreast of the newest, baddest, most cutting edge technologies and things related. He also reads a lot about politics, economic issues, and world trends, trying to keep an open mind and try to see what’s going on in the world. Some of his favorite sites are The New York Times, The Economist, The Huffington Post, Harvard Business Review, Inc., 30 Second MBA and a few others. He loves languages and, as you might have guessed, interacting with folks from other cultures, it gets him pumped. He fluently speak Spanish and Portuguese and feeds articles that are interesting to him to his Twitter and Facebook page.
He spends a lot of time traveling between the US and Brazil.
