Brazilian energy with japanese discipline.
I don’t know if it’s a good combination, but it’s been working so far.

I'm currently working at GUT São Paulo.
Before that I was at Africa DDB, and together with so many talented people we managed to achieve results like the Agency of the Year at El Ojo de Iberoamérica in 2017 and in 2018 we helped Africa to be the most awarded brazilian agency at Cannes Lions for the first time, ranking to the top american agency in the DDB Group.

I strongly believe in ideas that can promote some kind of change, make people think or at least make them smile. That’s what I’ve been trying to do in the past 10 years of career and will continue looking for, with clients like Budweiser & Brahma (AB-InBev), ESPN, Heinz, MTV, Natura, Telefónica's Vivo, Mitsubishi Motors, Qualy (BRF Foods), Penguin Books and more.

Besides that, I'm really into tattoos, sneakers, ugly action figures, South Park, all kinds of YouTube channels (comedy, retro gaming, vlogs, dogs & cats, shoe reviews, useless DIYs, recipes that I'll never cook, southeast asians showing primitive skills and all the weirdness in between), exploring nature and new cultures.
