I'm Thadeu Luz, a fast-learning and pragmatic entrepreneur, data scientist and full-stack engineer with a background in 3D Animation, Video Compositing and Architecture.

I'm CPO and founder of Hand Talk, an internationally decorated company that produces automatic sign language interpretation. Being able to pick up new skills fast and to adapt to different roles goes very well with my role as a startup founder. My work usually consists of moving around and solving our hardest technological challenges and picking up new skills as necessary, wich included: 3D character design and animation; server code and cloud infrastructure, mobile and web app development; and more recently data science and machine learning engineering. My soft skills include team management, raising money, pitching and all else that comes with being a startup founder.

I have always been very passionate about arts and technology. I love to spend time puting things together with a purpose. I also find pleasure in understanding the various techniques and tools of how to create or solve problems. I believe that more important than acquiring these skills is to keep the correct motivation when using them and really trying to understand the impact they'll have in the world. As such, I try my best to use what I have learned to make the world a nicer and more inclusive place (or at least a little easier to live in). I'm based in Maceió, Brazil with wife and kids.
