About Me

I’m a brazilian self-taught visual artist, born in 1979 in Salvador/Bahia. I began to work with illustration and animation in late 1990′s, and since I left Salvador in 2001, I’ve lived/worked in São Paulo, Los Angeles, New York and Barcelona. I’ve used my skills in studios such as Lobo, Logan, Belief, Boolab, Blacklist, Psyop, Hornet, on projects to a wide range of brands like Coca-Cola, Nike, GE, MTV, UNICEF, Volkswagen, Diesel, Lucas Arts and Apple.

Besides my commercial work, I had the pleasure to work on collaborative projects along fashion, dance performances, theatre plays, short and featured movies. My work has been published in books, magazines and specialized websites.

Since 2011, I’m based in São Paulo, Brazil, and now I decide to look for a new challenge here or somewhere else. Feel free to contact me about work or just to say hello. I hope you enjoy the website, thank you for your time.
