Q&A with Lucas
What’s the common thread that runs through your career?
I was born and raised in Brazil, and I made the decision to move to America when I was about 10. My entire family ended up relocating to the US later on in life. The passion and respect for entrepreneurship is entrenched in American culture, and it continues to inspire me to this date.
What’s one of your superpowers?
A founder I’ve worked with for many years once told me, “you have the gift of enthusiasm.”
A book you commonly gift to people?
The Hard Things About Hard Things by Ben Horowitz
In your spare time?
I have always loved video games… I taught myself to speak English by playing Warcraft, Dota, and other online games.
