Well, I am a 23 year old from Sao Paulo Brazil, and was raised basically watching movies. I always had a passion for visual audio. Being Cinema, Television, Commercials, VideoClips, I always loved the combination and the mix of visual, and music.

I speak four languages (Portuguese, French, Spanish, and English). I come from a multi-cultural family but was raised in Sao Paulo and I consider myself Brazilian. I'm currently living in Los Angeles, trying out my lucky on the World of Cinema. I almost had the luck of signing with a commercial director but it didn't work out. There is a lot of things involved on the process and a lot of risks for both sides therefore I continue looking for an opportunity.
I have a passion for nostalgia and that's what I like to film in a spontaneous way.
My favorite filmmakers are: Walter Salles, Jean Pierre Jeunet, Guilhermo Del Toro, Alfonso Cuarón, Michael Mann My favorite Movies: Central do Brasil, Amelie, Children of Men, Magnolia, The Insider.
