About me

Trying something awesome once in a while. I'm Brazilian (and a Portuguese citizen!), 31 and just got moved to Barcelona with my girlfriend. How great is that?! I’ve been working in advertising for 17 years now, 12 of them as Creative Art Director, and what I like more in my work is to think cool things that can bring something good to the world. Or at least, entertain it. During those lot of years I passed by some cool agencies as Y&R, Grey, Pereira & O'Dell, VML, among a few others, and created for clients such as Procter & Gamble Brazil, LG, Latam Airlines (former TAM), Telefonica-Vivo, Bradesco Bank, Jeep, Mercedes, Mini, Fiat, Santa Casa Hospital, Colgate, Palmolive, Schin (beverages), Estadão (newspaper) - among others, listed on my linkedIn. Today I’m working as Freelance Creative based in Barcelona, working projects of anywhere ~ from anywhere ~ in the world. Thanks, internet! And I’m also taking care of Positive Drop, a social startup / NGO that I found to help on the search for immediate blood donors. The bright of my eyes. A very very cool project that I’m passionate about. So the thing is that my whole career happened in São Paulo and right now I'm living in Barcelona. To shake things a little bit and try some new roads that will definitely bring a good experience and improve some skills. Yet, there are two things that I'm keeping in mind - and so should you: 1. I can make a nice work from anywhere in the world having a good internet. 2. Good opportunities are always welcome and great ones can lead to new plans. Well, that was a fresh sum up I think. There's more about me ~ like the fact I’m also a Kung Fu Black Belt! ~ but I think it would be better to talk in person if you were interested to. Let me know. :)
