I was born in Brazil in 1977 and earned a B.Sc. in Agriculture in Costa Rica in 1999. I moved to the US in 2000 to study English and do an internship in organic agriculture. Life took a different path and I’ve worked in construction since 2002
Sabrina Ribeiro and I were married in 2010 and we were blessed with 2 beautiful children. These three amazing people are the loves of my life and the driving force behind everything I do.
Prior to partnering with Valmar and creating Master Home Builder, I owned ACR Construction, a company that was specialized in forensic inspection, severe damage repair and general construction needs.
After doing few renovations, I saw the delighted faces of the new homeowners as they took possession of their keys for the first time. I liked being a part of people lives, helping them feel special and right at home. I could tell there would be something particularly rewarding about designing and building homes from the ground up alongside the family that would make that house their home. This passion lead to the creation of Master Home Builder, LLC.
