About

I'm a 31 year-old award winning brazilian senior copywriter and a big SNL and Os Normais fan,  currently working at:

David Miami


︎
São Paulo -> Sydney -> Shanghai -> São Paulo -> Miami (São Paulo based).






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 as if they were sketches that can sell a brand POV or a funny and engaging idea, no matter how wild they seem.

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.

I’M SORRY

a film about people glued to their phones

I spent years frustratingly trying to avoid not bumping into people looking at their phones. It was hard work and more and more people kept appearing with those damn phone.

And if you cannot defeat them, make a video criticizing their behaviour? Isn’t that what they say?

I decided to walk around some of Sydney’s busiest streets with a camera on my chest. Playing the part of “lost tourist with a camera strangely on the chest”, I purposely kept bumping into people that were using their phones. And too busy to notice a 5’11, 250 pounds Brazilian guy.

”I’m Sorry” is the result of 3 weeks of filming and over 100 bumps.
