As a conceptual designer and art director, I’ve created innovative work for multiple platforms of media, especially in the areas of interactivity and motion graphics. My design approach combines sophisticated ideation with unorthodox thinking, always with an eye towards adapting to the latest technologies. I believe the strength of my work lies in my ability to combine motion and photographic techniques along with surprising graphic applications.
Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, I began my career in 1989 at the advertising agency McCann-Erickson.
While studying Business Administration at Candido Mendes University, I worked McCann's television and film department. It was there I discovered my love for the editing and production of commercials, working for clients such as Coca-Cola, Gillette, McDonald's and L'Oreal. I eventually added computer graphics design to that skill set.
In 1993, I moved to Los Angeles to work for Kampah Visions, a Venice studio at the forefront of animation and design. I also took courses in typography, design and film at the University of California, Los Angeles, as well as the Art Center College of Design and American Film Institute.
In late 2001, I started my own company and forged creative partnerships with several of the most reputable design companies in the U.S., working on a diverse range of projects across North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia.
I currently live in La Jolla, California with my wife Carol and two sons, Leonardo and Lance.
