Hoi! I’m Vinicius. I believe that empathy and curiosity about why we move through this world the way we do are key to solving problems.

I like learning about history, languages, art, and so many other things. For the past decade I have embraced the exciting intersection of code, product, and design.

Currently, I’m a systems designer at GitHub. There I’m helping to scale its design system and improve workflows for developers around the globe.

In the past I designed thoughtful web services for Microsoft in the Cloud & AI division. Before that, I joined Xamarin as their first designer, and ever since I’ve been collaborating with immensely talented people.

I grew up in the Brazilian southeast coast, and been calling San Francisco home for almost a decade.

Born at 354 ppm CO2.
