About me

Felipe is an Associate Creative Director/Copywriter, currently building HULU’s brand alongside his teammates at Big Family Table.

Across the past 13 years, Felipe has lived in 3 different continents and worked in agencies both small and large -- including Ogilvy Brazil, 72andSunny, and Deutsch LA.

He is very thankful to the people who helped him throughout his career and lucky to have worked on great brands such as Coca-Cola, Uber, Google, Volkswagen, Sony, Taco Bell and many more.

Felipe truly believes in creativity without a definition of a platform, and by combining universal insights, storytelling and technology, his work has been consistently recognized at every major international award show. This includes more than 10 Cannes Lions, a One Show ‘Best of Discipline’ and a D&AD Wood Pencil.

He is also a certified screenwriter, awarded with distinction, by the prestigious University of California (UCLA).

When Felipe is not doing “ads that don’t look like ads”, he’s writing politically incorrect comedy sketches or playing soccer alongside terrible players -- just like himself.
