Hi!

I’m a Brazilian creative with passion for innovation, entertainment,
storytelling, arts and guess what? Advertising.

I started my career 13 years ago in the Northeast of Brazil, a region where the landscapes are better than the advertising opportunities. So, I decided to move to São Paulo. My whole family asked me Why?! and I could only answer Why not?

Luckily, I had good mentors who then became great friends. And, faster than I could ever imagine, I was working at Africa DDB Brazil – where I won my first lion.

In 2015, I accepted an offer from Impact BBDO Dubai. I was excited. My mom was questioning my sanity. There, I worked as a Senior Art Director / Associate Creative Director, leading creative campaigns for brands like Pepsi, Snickers, 7UP, KFC and Johnson & Johnson. And won my second lion.

When I was about to buy a camel, life brought me back to Brazil. Luckily (again), I had the chance to restart at the legendary DM9DDB, where I worked on McDonald’s and Itaú Bank for almost two years. I’m now having fun at Leo Burnett as the main art director for Fiat.

My main goal is to make remarkable work with nice people, especially if they love crafting as much as I do. I strongly believe that great ideas can come to life if you put all your heart and hard work into them.

Feel that we should talk? Let’s do it.
