I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Growing up in Rio I experienced different realities between extremes within the city - this experience created my perception of the world and informs my interest in storytelling until today. After studying cinema in Brazil I moved to Vancouver where I have been working in the film industry for the past 14 years. My passion for filmmaking has led my work to be screened at festivals including Chicago International Film Festival, Foyle International Film Festival, Vancouver International Film Festival, and Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival, among others. I am a proud member of ICG 669, and am available as a cinematographer and Steadicam operator for film, TV, commercials, music videos, and independent projects.
