About me
I'm a TV producer, a zinester, an independent record label owner and a music lover. I started my own music fanzine in 1989 when I was 16. About the same age, I started organizing indie gigs in Rio de Janeiro. All this DIY action took me to MTV Brazil in 1994 and, since then, I've been working in the audiovisual area as a TV producer. In 2017, I have moved to London where work remotely as a freelance consultant to a Brazilian nationwide TV channel After 3 decades, the "indie DIY saga" has turned my fanzine into a record label, and an audiovisual Production House focused on promoting new Brazilian music and producing music-related content. My passions are music, the stories behind it and creating audiovisual content about it.

British superstar DJ and singer Amazonica is re-releasing her "Songs From The Edge" album and we are promoting it in Brazil. This music video, "I've Been Down", brilliantly edited by Tatiana Germano, is one of the pieces we are using to present Amazonica's musi

  • True Love Will Find You in the End
    True Love Will Find You in the EndDuring the lockdown, six musicians from bands on my label (midsummer madness) recorded versions of Daniel Johnston's "True Love Will Find You in the End". The idea was sending a message of hope. Musicians from cities like Milan, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, home-recorded their renditions of the song. Tatiana Germano edited the video, I assisted her, mixed the audio for the video and did all executive production to put the EP out. Cover art was comissioned to João Pesce and Chandra Drummond.
