BIO
August, 2020

I’ve been working as a creative for more than 15 years, first as a copywriter then as a creative director, in Sao Paulo and New York (from 2006 to 2010 under an 0-1 visa). I have worked for big and small agencies, content publishers, TV shows, Youtube channels and independent projects.
During my career I had the chance and the luck to develop highly creative and innovative communication projects that stood out in the fields of digital/social and branded/original content. As Creative Director I mentored teams as big as 12 people using my experience and passion for creativity to inspire them deliver high profile creative work in terms of concept and execution.
Cannes Lions (including a Grand Prix and being part of an Agency of the Year team), SXSW Interactive, Facebook Studio Awards, One Show, MTV VMB are some of the festivals that recognized my work. On the other side of the table I have been an IADAS (International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences) executive member and Webby Awards jury member for a couple of years now.
On the original content side, one of my writings, a feature film screenplay, was optioned by Amazon Studios US, but ended up never getting produced. After that, the rights of a concept for a film/series I wrote was bought by Studio Canal and then recently bought from them by Amazon Studios BR.
