About Rafael

I came from the advertising industry, more than 20 years as Creative Director helping companies to sell. One day I grew tired of all that and decided to dedicate myself to a passion from youth: screenwriting.

When I decided to pivot my career, I plunged with all I got. I quit advertising, spent one year creating a solid and polished portfolio (features, series bibles, original pilots, and spec scripts) and went to the arena to sell them. Here in Brazil, I sold one original series, in development for a major network, and was commissioned to write two feature films in 2018. I also have another original series in advanced negotiations with a relevant international player. Meanwhile, I directed a short film, and I will produce and direct a low budget horror movie in 2018. But my main goal is to build a career in the most professional and competitive market in the world, so I'm preparing myself to move to LA with my wife and kids for a MFA.

In my spare time, I use to fall from the skies in my paraglider (I'm such a lousy pilot I can't figure how I'm still alive) or to sail around with my boat (and sailing is the one thing I suck at more than flying). But what I really love is to play guitar for my kids and tell them bedtime stories I create from the heart or adapt from movies I love.
