I co-founded goTenna. I grew up in São Paulo, and live in Brooklyn.

Short story: goTenna is a small device that allows you to use your smartphone to send and receive messages and share your GPS location with others even when you don’t have service.
Longer story: goTenna is a small, rugged device designed to make “No Service” no problem. Just pair your smartphone with a goTenna and communicate off-grid with those near you who also have goTenna, anywhere on the planet, regardless of access to cell reception or wi-fi. goTenna allows you to send and receive texts and share GPS locations on beautiful offline maps, without ever relying on central connectivity. Depend on it in all kinds of situations: when hiking in remote areas, traveling, attending music or sporting events or during an emergency.
