Tiago Passos

Tiago Passos

Tiago Passos is the Director of the Department of Institutional Advancement.

He makes sure that our happiness does not get lost in the process and brings us all together on the same page, in OnePage, in our 4D database, etc. He was imported from Brazil a few years ago, but already has a kid made in USA.

He had been trying to decide between a life in seclusion and married life for about a decade, but now his lovely wife has given him two kids to make sure he’s not meditating all day.

Since there isn’t much soccer in town, he plays PJ Masks and Superheroes with his crew.
