    About me

    I am a Brazilian/ Irish director, producer, editor, colorist and drone enthusiastic. My working experience in Brazil variety of roles such as director, scriptwriter, researcher, editor and videographer.

    By the end of 2015 I decided to move to London, and in 2017 I graduated from Met Film School - MA degree in Film directing. One year after my graduation Gridline Pictures Ltd, my production company was established in London - for more information please visit the company website. Gridline Pictures Ltd gathers in its essence all principles I believe are important: professionalism and a driven attitude, honesty and transparency, creativity and collaboration, positiveness and harmony. Big challenge!

    Since 2018 I have worked on a range of projects worldwide and again seeing myself playing different roles and having the opportunity to connect to amazing people. I have not only gained experience as a director, but worked as editor, colorist, drone pilot, videographer to develop a wider range of skills. Creative and driven, I am always in pursuit of knowledge and enhancement.

    Also on my CV appears 10+ years of drama experience. I had the opportunity to study in places like Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, London and Moscow. All these years on the actors role helped me to better understand storytelling, directing, editing and other facets of a cultural project.
