Please fell free to say hello at anytime!

I’m a Los Angeles based freelance Designer, Illustrator and Animator.
My career started in 2012 after studying at UNESP  when I was offered a position at Lobo/ Vetor Zero. Since then I’ve been a part of projects and campaigns for all kinds of clients, in roles that run from designer to creative director. I’ve had the great chance to collaborate in projects with people that I admire and respect. As an Art Director at Lobo/Vetor Zero I was fortunate enough to co-lead, design and animate on projects that garnered several awards that you can check bellow. In 2015 I started freelancing and I am in this position since then.
