Hello! I am a Brazilian/Portuguese 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 dad, a photographer, on his photoshoots for advertising.  I was always fascinated to see ideas coming to life through his camera and intrigued by the visual concepts and solutions from the different creatives who used to pass by his studio. I believe that was when without knowing it, I started to become an Art Director.

My career in advertising started as a Digital Art Director at Repense, a local Brazilian agency, and after one year, tons of banners, and great friends made there, I had the chance to join Ogilvy Brazil.

At Ogilvy, I was lucky to learn from many talented people and leaders in our industry, who helped in my development as a creative. It was also there the place where I had my first achievements in the ad world.

At the end of 2016, I moved to the Emirates to join TBWA Dubai, helping the agency to win the title of Agency of The Year in the Dubai Lynx, the most important award in the region, and being the number 1 in the Cannes Lions regional ranking.

My cycle in Dubai ended in 2021 with 2 bronze lions for the Shift + KFC campaign just when packed my stuff and moved to Zürich for a new chapter.

It is been a good time in Switzerland so far, especially in the summertime as I was not raised with any snowboarding or skiing skills but surfing waves in Rio. The cheese is great which is a huge plus for me, trains are always on time, and I’m also trying to be.
