Originally from Brazil, Danilo holds a Bachelor Degree in Mechanical Engineering. In 2017 when arrived in New Zealand Danilo was presented the opportunity to work in the fire protection industry and eventually became the person responsible for educating people and preparing fire protection documentation and specifications, seeking to ensure the installations are compliant with New Zealand standards, site inspections, and fire reports.

From this interest in fire protection and noticing the need of the market for good and independent professionals, Danilo decided to further his education and qualified in Passive Fire Protection Systems (Level 4). He is now a producer statement author with Auckland Council (PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4) working through his post-graduate degree in Fire Engineering (University of Canterbury), and the specializations for IQP status.
