VP Associate Creative Director at Area 23
New York, United States

About me

Born in a small town right outside São Paulo (Brazil), I’ve made my way through America to Asia. I have over 15 years of experience, developing and leading creative campaigns for amazing clients at agencies like McCann, Ogilvy, Publicis and J. Walter Thompson, M&CSaatchi and Laundry Service.
I’m constantly trying to improve my skills, which has helped me win a few Golds at Dubai Lynx and MENA Digital (including Campaign of the Year), a Bronze Effie and even a Best Portfolio at the Behance Appreciation Awards in New York. I also had a project featured in the Lürzer's Archive - 200 BEST Illustrators Worldwide 18/19.

I’m currently based in New York City, as a VP ACD at Area23.

Playstation lover, frustrated goalie, rookie illustrator and proud father of two cats.
