I've been taking part in the international typographic community since 2005. My involvement with ATypI board started in 2015, when I joined the local committee to organise the annual conference in São Paulo, Brazil. In 2017, I joined the board and had been a voice for the type communities in the Southern Hemisphere. I have also been dealing with visual maters, designing the visuals for the conference in 2015 and 2018, and now working on the website redesign. I'm running for a second term to continue offering a down under voice to the association.
