About me

I am a filmmaker born and raised in Brazil, I have started my career initially as a screenwriter as well as working in production for Broadcast Television. Over the past five years I have written, directed and produced a number of shorts films, documentaries and corporate videos. I enjoy working with people from different backgrounds, learning from new experiences and, like the opposite of a Kubrick film, keeping my eyes wide open. I am passionate about TV and Film, creating new ideas and collaborating on exciting projects.
