- About Me -

“This is not about me or my work. This is about life.”


    I often say that life starts when we go beyond our comfort zone. That is why I chose to do something that challenges me everyday. My life is a endless journey where I am constantly trying to find the best way of sharing my experiences, either through films, photos, videos, drawings and every form of art that comes out of me.

    Awarded in many countries and screened in big festivals around the world, my last project “Agora” (Now) is a climbing film that questions the summit, or top. We usually overvalue to the success and totally forget to enjoy the adventure, the process, the climb, the Now. I love sharing these types of questions we often leave behind with our busy and complexes lives.

    After 3 years in Los Angeles, where worked and developed my filmmaking tools to the next level, just moved back to Brazil and currently looking for my next adventure/experience in this amazing country that I call home.
