Company Snapshot

Together with his friend Andre, Tomaz, the son of esteemed Brazilian authors, founded Publit, a full service web-based publishing company. Publit democratizes access to publishing by giving qualified writers an inexpensive way to release their work to the mass market. The concept has proven itself especially relevant to the academic market, where it publishes theses and other class materials, and the corporate market, publishing manuals and reports for corporate clients.

In 2009, Tomaz founded a new venture.
