He spent four of these years in his native country Brazil, before moving to Austria. The 38-year-old lives in Hard by Lake Constance with his wife and young son. In our ‘People at ALPLA’ interview, he gave us an insight into his life and spoke to us 关于 his preferences, his achievements and things which are typical for Brazil.

You know the moulds that kids play with in a sandpit? You need moulds to make bottles and packaging too. You heat plastic to make it really soft, and then it adapts to the shape of the mould to create a bottle. I develop moulds like these together with my co-workers and I also look around for the right kind of plastic.

ALPLA has a drinks bottle which is made exclusively by our apprentices and is used as a giveaway. After ten years, the model is now being revised. It’s a very interesting project. The bottle also serves as a showpiece for and a means of identification with the company. The new bottle will therefore likewise be highly practical and robust, and will also look good.

The most important event that has made the biggest impression in my life was the birth of my son. He is now one year old and he gives me and my wife a great deal of joy. Being a dad is therefore my greatest achievement.

I would sometimes like to be the person in a joint project who sees the project from a different perspective as this would help me understand my counterpart’s perspective a bit better (laughs).

In Portuguese, you say ‘A saudade faz o que foi melhor do que era’, which roughly translates as ‘Longing makes what’s in the past better than it was’. But the word ‘saudade’ is so unique that it can’t be adequately translated with just one word. It represents a nostalgic feeling of having forfeited something which was precious to you. And it expresses not only a negative or sad mood, but also joy. When I think about Brazil, this saying works like a dose of anti-homesickness for me.

I would use the extra hour to learn languages. Greek and Italian are on my list.

‘Happiness only real when shared.’ It’s a line from the film Into the Wild, which is about a guy from an affluent background who drops out of society in search of himself. He ultimately has this insight and he is quite right.

The dish is called ‘Picanha na brasa’ and is a barbecued beef rump steak. It is an integral part of a ‘churrasco’, which is a Brazilian barbecue.

For me, ‘Family of Pioneers’ instantly brings to mind a caravan of wagons exploring new land in a Western film. These are people who have a shared vision and explore new avenues, and are the first to do so. They have to be able to rely on one another at all times.
