About Gustavo Cordeiro
“Renegade of Funk”
Being a first-generation immigrant and college graduate, I’ve always enjoyed meeting new people and getting to know their unique perspectives and experiences. As my studies in Business Administration concluded, the opportunity to specialize in networking with technology professionals fell in my lap and I’ve grown exponentially since! Having old-school immigrant parents while growing up during the tech boom of the past 20 years, I’ve been amazed by the development of the internet and the countless innovations associated. I enjoy pairing my passion of meeting people with the business education and experience in technology both professional and personal I’ve gained over the years.
Business Administration – University of Utah.
Motorcycles, basketball, hip hop, video games, traveling, and my pets!
Share 3 fun facts about yourself:
I have 7 tattoos.
During college I organized events, most notably an 8000 person show headlined by Migos.
I am Brazilian born but raised in Utah. I speak fluent Portuguese but with an accent!
What are your favorite hobbies outside of work?
I absolutely love riding my motorcycle! I have a 1985 Yamaha XJ700 Maxim which I take into the city or nearby canyons when weather permits.
Always been a big video game fan. Since a young age I’ve played RPGs, sports games, survival, shooters, and various other types.
What did you want to be when you were 5?
An Airforce fighter pilot, but I needed glasses from a young age and so my interests shifted.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
Flight. I’ve taken several flights and gone sky diving once. The feeling of being in the air above everything is amazing. I’d be able to visit different locations and have fun while traveling there!
What is one thing you have never gotten over?
Brazil’s epic 7-1 loss to Germany in the World Cup. I remember exactly where I was and the feelings I went through as the score updated. Devastating.
