Based in Porto, Portugal, graduated from Puc-Rio with a degree in graphic design, working with design and visual merchansiding.

I started working with design in 2007, when I interned for Puc-Rio's design studio, where I was dedicated in several projects within the university and outside clients from the studio. One year later, I worked in a communication agency called Red Bandana, developing brand design and packaging materials for several clients.  It was until 2010, that I started working at one of the most important brazilian beachwear brand, Salinas, where I spent most of my career. I was responsable for design and visual merchandising departments coordinating both, developing window displays, scenarios, online and offline design pieces, packaging and branding related work.

Recently, I developed interest in environmental and sustainability issues and started to engage and use my experience as a designer, working with events, organizations and people related with this theme.

I keep searching for creative projects that contribute for my development both as a person and a professional.
