​In college I attended Art School and majored in Drama & Theater Arts. For five years I was a stage and video actor engaged in experimental projects involving art, performance, music, dance and literature while I was enrolled in several performing arts courses.    

Photography came into my life nine years ago when I had a restaurant for five years in the Jardins are of the city. It was a trendy hangout where São Paulo's creative crowd mainly from the music and fashion scenes gathered every night.

In time, I discovered that what I enjoy mostly is to tell stories either through writing, acting or directing. Photography sums up all these things I love. 

My first professional steps were made in the core of São Paulo's high fashion world shooting magazine editorials and campaigns for important local brands. 

Soon after I embraced my own personal projects.
