I have worked in security for almost 20 years; I joined the Brazilian Military Police Force in 1990 and served in a variety of roles in both national and international security forces. My specializations include hostage rescue and negotiations as well as crisis management. I was given the opportunity to work with United Nations security forces on two separate occasions; my first experience was with the United Nations Transitional Administration in East Timor (UNTAET) where I trained close protection officers for the local authorities. I enjoyed working across transnational borders and sharing experiences with security forces from other nations. In 2004, I again worked with the United Nations, but this time with the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), where I served as the Chief of the Special Mentoring Unit. In the role, I was responsible for overseeing the training of the Haitian Police Special Units.

My experience with national and international security forces, provided me with unique skills. I was given the opportunity to bring these skills to the Organization when I joined the United Nations Department of Safety and Security (DSS) in 2006. There are many similarities as well as key differences when one compares national and international security operations. Like all security forces, for example, the United Nations DSS trains Security Officers to neutralize any perceived threat while maintaining a working order within the system.

The difference, however, between national security forces and the United Nations security forces is with the mission of the latter. DSS enables all of the offices within the Organization to work towards the greater cause of global peace building and stability. This creates a much larger responsibility that goes way beyond that of national security forces. The mission of DSS is geared toward the “greater good” and facilitating a happy work environment globally. The Security Officers of the United Nations are expected to be cordial and helpful, as well as effective at reducing a threat. They are not just representatives of their home countries, but of the United Nations as an international organization.

As a Chief of Security, the most important thing I have to offer is my leadership. My experiences in the Brazilian Military Police shaped my leadership style and I use this in a variety of different ways. First and foremost, it is my responsibility to ensure the well being of the Security Officers within my office. I serve them because they serve the people working at the United Nations. I am responsible for managing budgets, finance, human resources, and training. I am also serve a security adviser to 14 different United Nations agencies in Chile.

I love Chile. It is a beautiful country and a great place to raise a family. In Santiago the climate is very diverse, as is the culture. The scenery is beautiful and the people are extremely friendly. I enjoy the sights of Santiago, the fine dining, and most importantly the time with my family. I enjoy spending time with my 11-year old boy, who is especially good at beating me at Nintendo Wii.
