Cassio Audi is a Brazilian-born entrepreneur who had an early career as a drummer in the heavy metal band known as Viper. The group rose to fame when their debut album Soldiers of Sunrise became a hit. All of the members of the group were teenagers when they formed the band, and were heavily influenced by British heavy metal bands such as one called Iron Maiden.After being with the group for several years in the 1980s, Cassio Audi suddenly left it just a year after they had achieved success with their initial album. He went on to attend Sao Paulo University , where he obtained an MBA degree, and Pontifical Catholic University, where he earned a BA degree in Business.
After completing college, he went into the fields of real estate and investment management, working at places like Brazil Real Estate Partners and JP Morgan Chase.He became an experienced financial expert who advises clients on how to use strategic planning when it comes to investing their money. Although this industry is much different from the one he started out in so many years ago when he was in Viper, Cassio Audi excelled at it. But he still stays connected to his former fellow band members by performing with them every year at a concert they put on in their home country for fans of the former band.
Over the years, Viper has had quite a few band members who have joined, and who have been replaced. The original members of the group included Cassio Audi, Felipe Machad, Andre Matos, Pit Passarell, Yves Passarell and Renato Graccia.
