Why are you part of the Card Curator team?

I LOVE points and miles. I use credit cards to help fund my own hobby and traveling around the world (pre-covid) and I want to help other people do the same. Although it's far off from healthcare, I definitely feel like Card Curator/traveling is one of my biggest side-passions.

Post-COVID, where is the first place you would travel to?

Such a hard question - I feel like I want to go to so many places. If I had to choose, I'd probably pick Bali. I just need an island get-a-way right now haha.

Before covid, I'd love to travel whenever I had any extended weekends or vacations. Nowadays, I learned how to cook and enjoy creating different homecooked meals for my roommates!

What is your role?

Currently, I am working with the tech team to build an AI web scraper so that we can automatically update the card curator databases.

I am interested in entrepreneurship and felt that being part of Card Curator would give me a great insight into how the life of a startup is in its early stages.

Rio, Brazil.

Post-COVID, where is the first place you would travel to?

I will most likely travel to India to visit my grandparents and other relatives. I normally travel to India every other year but due to COVID, my trip in 2020 was canceled. So I would love to reconnect with my family in India when I get the chance.
