About me

I was born and raised in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. Traveler, explorer by heart, I love arts and cultures.


This love to the unknown led me to live abroad for several years: in Germany, in the USA and in the Netherlands. This exposition to new cultures and languages taught me a lot of who I am and how I envision my career as a photographer. 

I learned the art of taking meaningful, beautiful images and developing them by studying under great mentors in Los Angeles, CA in the USA. My art work is focused on portraits, either for professional or personal purposes, and weddings. I am specialist in black & white, but surely shoot in colors as well.

Today I approach my photography with dedication and love!

And I do believe that photography is more than just pushing a button. It is about feeling the moment.
