Listen to the Talk 2 Brazil interview by Tom Reaoch with Adam Gonnerman onMarch 10, 2014. 
We´ll talk about Adam´s challenges in relocating to Brazil as well as tips to others in a similar transition.
Adam has enjoyed a diverse professional life, having gone from English teacher in Uberlândia, Brazil to a short stint at a law office in Jersey City, New Jersey and then on to AT&T in the same state as an enterprise account manager. From there he stepped into a “multi-hat” web producer role at a startup company in New York before finding his way into project management at Condé Nast. While with Condé Nast he was the project manager for Wired.com, the first that brand had in this role since its acquisition from Lycos in 2006. In the year prior to his most recent move to Brazil he was a Senior Technical Product Manager for Scholastic, guiding online projects from conception to realization.
 This varied background is something he sees as strength, as each new role and experience builds on the last and contributes to his personal and professional growth. 
Adam is a strong believer in the value of technology in improving human life, through solving problems and bringing people together in common purpose. Though there are many examples of this, the use of social media to organize protests in Brazil and elsewhere in recent years is one, and free, online educational opportunities is another. Just 20 years ago the ease of communication and access to information we now enjoy was only just barely on the horizon. 
Having relocated in late 2013 with his family back to Uberlândia, Brazil, the birthplace of his wife and children, Adam is currently teaching English and exploring the local tech scene. Although someplace like São Paulo would seem like a more probable candidate than Uberlândia for this type of work, Adam sees possibilities for his adoptive home city becoming a digital hub for the Triângulo Mineiro region. 
He has his Bachelor’s in Theology from Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas and also holds the PMP, CSM and ITIL-f certifications. He and his wife Christiane currently make their home in Uberlândia, Brazil. He blogs regularly at www.adamgonnerman.com   and is on Twitter at https://twitter.com/awgonnerman
