At the age of 19, is called as a designer for a large advertising agency - AlmapBBDO, in São Paulo. Autodidact (self taught), interest and curiosity for photography has always been present. His first memories date back to childhood, between 7 and 8 years old, when the mother earned one or two film rolls 24 poses to take pictures of your own birthday. Sai, then, the street and takes pictures of neighbors. Years later extended their interest toward the film, the moving image. A frame was not enough to tell a story. I took a frame before and after: then – cinema!
