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.

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.
