Hello! I am Brazilian, living one hour away from São Paulo, and I have been working with animation for several studios great studios as Mikros, Dneg, Cinesite, Squeeze and many others.

I have been working as an animator since December/2014. In my portfolio there are some feature animation, TV shows, cinematic and VFX.

The most known project I worked was Paw Patrol The Movie and "Tainá and the Amazon's Guardians", a Nickelodeon TV show, and I worked as animation supervisor on it, being responsible to assist around 50 animators Worldwide. Nowadays I work as lead animator on Paw Patrol 2 at Mikros Animation Studios.

During my learning period, I was mentored by Marlon Nowe (Disney animator) at Animsquad, where I concluded the Expert Animation workshop, and by Michael Makarewicz (Pixar animator) at The Animation Collaborative, where I studied Advanced Acting for animators.

I also like to record myself to study better the acting choices I have in the shots, check it out in the video below ;)
