A bit of me


I’m a Senior Graphic Designer / Creative Design Director, born in Brazil and currently living in Los Angeles. Over there, I had the opportunity to work for a worldwide agency such as Mcgarrybowen, WPP, and for global brands like Mattel, Disney, Adidas, Under Armour, Asics, Intel, Nokia, Philips, Credicard, Pernod Ricard, Pepsi, Nestle, Procter & Gamble, Eucerin, Unilever, Kimberly Clark, Johnson & Johnson.

As a natural team leader, one of the highlights of my career was being the one that led the team that worked for the biggest release of Adidas in 2014 at the most important sport event in the world, the FIFA World Cup in Brazil. We created and produced the retail design campaign and all graphic communication for the soccer cleats and for that we also conquered a prize: Gold – POPAI USA – Special Retail design.

As a Senior Graphic Designer/Creative Design Director, I specialize in creating logos, branding, design strategy, packaging, environmental design, and executing digital and print campaigns across diverse channels.

Constant improvement is one of my obsessions. Among several courses, the highlights are a course of Interaction Design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Graphic Design at San Martin School of London and Design Thinking at ESPM in Sao Paulo.

When I was still living in Brazil, I had the opportunity to attend a few workshops with some of the best designers in the world such as Paula Scher, David Carson, Stefan Sagmeister, and Milton Glaser.

Nowadays I am employed at Korrus, where I specialize in synthesizing intricate concepts from the realms of technology, science, and illumination into innovative campaigns. This endeavor has proven to be both challenging and profoundly inspirational for me.

In 2020, I started taking art classes, a longtime dream that has come true. My M.A. in Art History is not something that happened by chance: in my work as a designer, being able to draw, paint and illustrate has expanded the possibilities within my projects as an artist as well. The Floral pattern designed for Frikolor Bag Collection in 2021, is an example of that where I combined art and design creating an exclusive Print.

I’m devoted, passionate about design and I’ll follow any opportunity, any chance I have to get inspired and fill in my creative side.
