Coming from a Brazilian family of creatives and entrepreneurs, I’ve always pursued the artistic path. I’m a graphic design graduate and I work as a freelance photographer and filmmaker based (but not fixed) in Portugal.
From fashion shoots and TV shows to destination weddings and commercial sets, I’m a professional without borders, and my passion lies on environmental and animal rights issues around the globe.
In 2016, I was one of the 5 finalists of Rio Photo Festival, and one year later I won the Great Outdoors category of the EyeEm Awards, the world’s largest photography competition. In 2018, I was granted with the Bolsa de Exploração Nomad (Nomad Exploration Grant) to create a short documentary about the dynamics between marine debris and the small animals that inhabit a particular beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, as well as the efforts being made to make sure they’re still alive while the beach is being cleaned. This film premiered at Porto’s Adventure Film Festival and soon will be available for free online.
Since 1987, I receive the World’s Cutest Human Being Award from my mom every single year, and I intend to keep this title for many more.
