I’m a Brazilian Cinematographer and Director with more than a decade of international experience filming for different mediums. Over the past years, I’ve worked on short narratives, tv commercials, branded content campaigns, web series, music videos and other formats.


I have filmed over Europe, United Kingdom, USA, and South America serving different Production Houses and clients such as Hennessy LVMH, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Fox Sports, Globo, Extra, FGV, Cantão, Órama, Leite de Rosas, Balbiino, and many others. 


Most recently I have been selected by the American Society of Cinematographers to join the ASC Vision Mentorship Program (2021 - 2022) having Michael Goi (ASC, ISC) as my mentor.

I’m also a Master of Arts in Cinematography by Viewfinder MA. Winner of a full scholarship by Erasmus, I have graduated with honors after two-years of studies across Dublin, Budapest and Tallinn. My most recent works are being well received and screened in International Film Festivals.

Besides signing the main cinematography in several projects I have also worked as a Camera Operator for TV shows, concerts, and documentaries. I have also crewed as part of the Camera Department (1AC, 2AC, DIT) for several features, short films, music videos, TVC’s and series.
