Animation has always been a passion of mine - ever since I can remember! My purpose in pursuing this field is to be able to tell stories and immerse an audience in a world that can bring them joy and convey powerful messages. I genuinely believe Animation can have a big impact on people and on the world.. wether by making people's day slightly better or having an effect on how the world thinks and evolves. Animation is the best genre in communicating with children, and we must never forget: children are our future. By sending the right messages, evoking the right feelings, we can achieve something remarkable.
Born in the marvelous city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, I grew up surrounded by an inspiringly beautiful setting: high mountains, forest, blue ocean waters and many grains of sand. Although I consider it to be the most beautiful, happy place on Earth, there is also a lot of inequality, corruption, and lack of safety. The stress of never feeling safe, lack of job opportunities, and the unfortunate state my country was in, made me take the heartfelt decision of leaving and moving to the United States. I took that decision at 15 and rapidly switched to an American High School to have an American education which would better prepare me for university abroad. In 2013, I went to the University of Miami, Florida.
After completing my bachelor in Creative Advertising in Miami, with minors in Digital Media, Film, Arts and Marketing, I realized that my creative passion lied elsewhere... in a field that I have always been in love with: ANIMATION. That word alone, makes my heart fill with joy and love. An art capable of bringing happiness and communicating important messages to all kinds of audiences. Animation is a culmination of everything I have ever loved: storytelling, emotion, acting, technology, and film. It allows you to transport people to a limitless world of possibilities and touch their hearts in the most truthful way.
After deciding to specialize in Animation, I spent a semester studying the subject in the Academy of Art in San Francisco, and then moved to London where I completed a Masters in 3D ANIMATION in ESCAPE STUDIOS, 2020.
