Hello! I'm a Brazilian/Portuguese Creative Art Director and an amateur guitar player, living and working in Zurich, not as a guitar player.

When I was younger, I used to follow my father, a photographer,
on his photoshoots for advertising. I was always intrigued by the
visual concepts and solutions from different Art Directors who used
to pass by his studio and also fascinated to see ideas coming to life
through my dad's camera. I believe that was when without knowing,
I started to become an Art Director.

Time passed and after working as a designer in a tourism company
and as a Digital Art Director in a smaller agency, I joined Ogilvy 
& Mather Rio de Janeiro, where I've worked for a bit more than
4 years and was lucky to learn from many talented people who
helped in my development as a creative. At Ogilvy, I had the
opportunity to create some work for clients like Fanta, Coca-Cola
Zero, OLX, FIFA, Band Sports TV Channel, Flying Horse Energy
Drink, S.C. Johnson, and also had my first important achievements
in the ad world.

At the end of 2016, I've moved to the Emirates to join TBWA RAAD
where I had the chance to see my work helping the agency to win
the title of Agency of The Year in the Dubai Lynx, most important
award of the region, and being number 1 in the Cannes Lions
regional ranking. In 2018 and 2019, I was nominated by the BW Report
in the Ranking of the Top 10 Art Directors in the MENA region.

In 2021, I've packed my things again and moved to Switzerland, closing my cycle in the Middle East with my last work at TBWA being recognized with two bronze lions in Cannes.
