I studied languages and Literature at a great University in Brazil and have a Master Degree in Greek Philosophy. During my academic research, I have learned a lot about story telling and grew up as a writer, thinker and observer person.
I lived in Salzburg, where I started to work in the organisation of a Brazilian film festival. Because of this job I had met some Brazilians film directors and began to learn filmmaking.
After that, I moved to Berlin to specialise myself in filmmaking. I studied cinematograph, editing and photography to improve my technical skills. I worked in some films projects and developed my own short films. I act in the whole film process, mostly as screenwriter, director, camera and editor.
