WOW, A WHOLE PAGE JUST ABOUT ME!

Currently Art Director at Alma DDB in the sunny Miami, I am a Brazilian-Italian multidisciplinary creative specializing in concept driven Art Direction & Design for all aspects of advertising and visual communication. During my career, I have been part of big name companies, such as Ogilvy & Mather NY and Havas.

I love to create stuff and I am passionate about traveling and exploring new places, my travels have taken me to over 50 countries allowing me to have a global perspective on different cultures.

I redefined my career switching from Law school—where my notes were covered in drawings—to Design in order to focus on a more creative track. Since I moved to the US in 2014, I have started my path into advertising by blending my design skills with original ideas. My philosophy is all about fully diving into projects because to me, great work takes focus, dedication and a healthy dose of bravery.

My work has been internationally recognized by major award-shows, including Cannes Lions, D&AD, One Show, Clio Awards, Art Director's Club, LIA Awards, Graphis, Golden Award of Montreux, ADDYS National, YGA, GDUSA Magazine, Applied Arts Magazine, PrintMag, Lürzer's Archive, Summit International Awards, among others.

In 2016, I had the elite honor of receiving the O-1 Artist Visa (USA) issued to People of Extraordinary Ability in their field based on awards, professional references, experience and creative portfolio. In the same year, I was nominated “200 Best Digital Artists Worldwide” by the prestigious Lürzer’s Archive.

I would be more than happy to provide you with more information, and encourage you to take a look at my work or just say hi.
