Summary

Hi, i´m an award winning 3d generalist working a long time for tv channels, advertising agencies, production companies and vfx houses.
I´ve been doing lots of jobs as a freelancer working mostly as a 3d generalist for studios like tendril, mk12, visorama, kite and lightning, los york, among others and on jobs for vw, pepsi, coca cola, duracell, activision, fiat/chrysler, hp, etc.
My main goal is to learn more animation and 3d art in general to become a better artist and person every day.
I enjoy 3d art a lot. And i also love to manage a small team of people. I do modelling, shading, lighting, character animation, figure drawing, storyboards and sculpture. I do yoga on my free time.
I started using my fathers super8 at the age of 12. Me and my brother used to animate matchbox cars, gi-joes, clay and our favorite "chalk drawings on a blackboard". Later i decided to study design at the federal school of fine arts here in rio de janeiro. There i met an awesome group of friends that were crazy to do animation as me. I learned my first 3d software and techniques with them. And i´m still thankful for everything they taught me.
They inspired me to directed two short films with other two of my friends and it got screened all around the world.
