About

I'm a 32 year-old award winning brazilian senior copywriter and a big SNL and Os Normais fan, currently working as Freelance Senior Copywriter

︎
São Paulo -> Sydney -> Shanghai -> São Paulo -> Miami -> São Paulo






My work so far has won 6 Cannes Lions (2 Gold, 1 Silver, 3 Bronze), 3 D&AD Pencils as well as One Show, NY Festivals and Clio. In 2016, I was chosen among 200 candidates to represent Brazil at Cannes Young Lions Festival where my partner and I got Bronze.

I approach advertising as my own Studio 8H from SNL, concepting ideias that can sell a brand POV, no matter how wild they seem, always trying to bring a little bit of fun in it.

In my spare time, I make bloc parties for 10.000 people (really!) and write about life, love and Despacito. Here’s a picture of me having a blast on Brazil’s cable TV.

TIDAL X USHER | DON’T LOOK AWAY

The world’s first music video that demands your attention

While social injustice and racial profiling keep taking lives, society keeps looking away.

For the launch of recording artist Usher's new song 'Chains', an anthem advocating for unarmed victims of violence, we created a an interactive site using face recognition technology.

When fans visit chains.tidal.com, they must hold the gaze of victims of social injustice to hear the track. If the viewer looks away, the music stops - demanding that they face the problem as the first step towards change.

BECK’S | BECK’S FREQUENCY

Can a sound frequency make the flavor of any beer taste more bitter?

Studies from Harvard and Oxford University shows that it’s possible to alter the perception of taste through sound.

Sounds at higher frequencies make food and drinks taste less bitter, while sounds at lower frequencies bring out the bitter flavor.

In partnership with big names in electronic music, nine tracks were produced using these two frequencies, for you to listen to when you don't have any Beck's around.

NUBANK | IT’S EASIER WITH NUBANK’S BUSINESS

A business account with features that feels like magic

We worked in parternship with Brand Managers and Product Marketing Manager to develop the stragy behind this product comms from the get go.

While the competition focused on motivational speeches and highlighted the bad aspects of owning a business, we decided to show what our features can do to actually help them during a busy day at work.

BECK’S | STARTER PACK

A unique way to evolve you tastedbuds for Beck’s bitterness.

Beck’s is the bitterest beer of its category.
All because its International Bitterness Unit,
or IBU, is 20, higher than any other beer in the same price range.

And brazillians weren’t used to something that bitter.
So, we decided to help a whole country
unlock their tastebuds for Beck’s bitterness.

We’ve created Beck’s Starter Pack. A special 6-pack
that came with lighter beers from the competition
in gradual IBU scale, to unlock
their tastebuds for Beck’s bitterness.

The pack sold out in 48 hours.

OMEN | ACHIEVE GAMEFULNESS

Can gaming make you smarter?

My mom always said no, but according to some scientists and researchers, it does. It can make you more focused and improve your stamina and responsiveness. Ouch, mom.

With this insight in our desks, we created a tongue in cheek campaign that united 2 things I love the most - gaming and poking fun at the mindfulness hype. If gaming can make you better, gaming is a lot like mindfulness. That’s how gamefulness was created.

In these three 30’’ spots, gamers are led by “The Masters” to train at the "Gamer Training Institute," where they can strengthen their real life abilities through gaming. Oh, and we didn’t forget brains that glows according to the beat of a song and of course, humans pyramids. You can’t have a gamefulness campaign without humans pyramids.
