Q1. What is your earliest memory of working for Telescope?

A1. I started 2 days before Halloween, and I remember everyone taking costumes very seriously. One of my teammates dressed in a full Spiderman suit. It was when I realized it would be really fun working here.

Q2.  What do you like most about your job?

A2. I like the campaigns I get to work on. And because the projects are fast paced, I work on a diverse range of campaigns, which means always learning something new.

Q3.  What was your first job?

A3.  I was a professional actress during high-school and starred on a play Thursday through Sunday nights

Q4.  What did you want to be when you grew up?

A4. An actress in Los Angeles. Turns out I did both, just not at the same time. I checked the actress box when I was 15 and the L.A. one with 25, but as a software developer.

Q5.  If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would purchase?

A5. The very first thing would be a first-class plane ticket to Brazil to celebrate with my family. I’d then buy a beach house with a huge yard for my dog, she deserves it. The house would be empty for most of the time as we’d be traveling around the world.

Q6. What’s your favorite song right now?

A6. Always a bunch of Indie Rock and Brazilian ones. Selfless by The Strokes, Bem Bom by Liniker and Na Garrafa by Trupe Chá de Boldo are the ones currently on repeat.

A7.  Spending the day at a beach with my dog and a book. Friends are welcome to join

Q8.  What is the best advice you’ve ever received?


Q9.  If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

A9. Time-space manipulation. I’d time travel and teleport around the world. Could go to a Beatles concert in 1964 London then dinner in 2025 Paris. Would probably skip 2020 entirely.

Q10. What app or piece of tech can’t you live without?

A10. I spent a week without GPS once and was afraid to leave my apartment. I’m constantly getting lost.
