Hi there! Welcome to my digital corner of the Internet. This is a space that is constantly changing and growing, so if you like what you see, please come back often. My name is Vladimir Campos, but most people call me Vlad. However, I am known online as _vladcampos_.
Before you interact with the rest of the content on this website, please take a moment to read my [[Ethics Statement]].
### From one enthusiast to another
I have been passionate about technology since very young. It all started with an [[🍎 Apple IIe Project Contents|Apple II+]], but it looks like life had other plans for me. I became an economist with a project management specialization, and a postgraduate degree in international relations.
For a long time, I couldn’t see it, but my education as an Economist and Project Manager specialist, the [[Library|books]] I like to read, and my passion for technology were the perfect combination to start a new career.
Evernote, Google Workspace, Trello, LanguageTool, Obsidian, Signal, TextExpander, and Zapier are some of the many services I use and recommend to my clients. But they are only tools. As a [[Consulting|consultant]] I help entrepreneurs create mindful workflows.
Then, in 2016 something unexpected happened. I began experimenting with educational videos and now also consider myself a Creator. On my [YouTube Channel](https://youtube.com/@vladcampos), you can learn more about the tools and workflows I use to help my clients.

If you represent a company looking for videos that have organic growth and keep getting watched for many years, my channel is a [[Sponsorship|great place to promote your products and services]].
### Pale Blue Dot
But wait, there’s another passion in the mix. I have visited so many places in this Pale Blue Dot and have no intention of slowing down any time soon. It has been the best way to understand and accept that what makes us so similar is that we all deal with the same joys, fears, and questions. The opportunity to experience different cultures is fascinating. It enlightens you.
Perhaps that’s why I also moved so frequently. I was born in Rio de Janeiro, and have lived in Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Brasília, Boston, Santiago de Chile, and, in 2018, the beautiful city of #Porto became my home.
### Online Presence
Although I try to use _vladcampos_ as my handle on all services, it is not always available. You'll find me on [Bluesky](https://bsky.app/profile/vladcampos.com), [Instagram (inactive account)](https://www.instagram.com/vladcampos), [LinkedIn](https://www.linkedin.com/in/vladcampos), [Substack](https://substack.com/@vladcampos), and [Twitter](https://twitter.com/vladcampos), but I rarely post on social media.
<a rel="me" href="https://mastodon.social/@vladcampos">Mastodon</a> is the best way to keep up with my updates between videos. I also try to publish articles at least once a week on [Medium](https://medium.com/@vladcampos). However, [YouTube](https://www.youtube.com/@vladcampos) is where most of my content is shared.
