About me

I am a choreographer of interaction. As a creative hybrid, I've been crafting content, strategies, and experiences for brands in Brazil, USA, and Netherlands. I have a background in video creation/direction, working for major beverage brands in Brazil, a design strategy mindset tailored with a Masters in Interactive Communications from New York University, and experience collaborating in places like Crispin, Porter + Bogusky (USA), VICE (Brazil), and 72andsunny (Amsterdam). Hidden in all job titles I ever had, there is a magician, a storyteller, a dancer. I am currently based in Amsterdam where I started a creative practice Imagination of things, mixing narrative design and creative technology to spark cultural impact.
