I'm a Brazilian director of photography currently based in Los Angeles. I have had the opportunity to work with esteemed companies such as Google, Twitter, and Uber, and I have been recognized for my work on the award-winning short documentary Uprooted and the short film They Come From The Sky.

My passion lies in exploring the emotional subtleties of a story and collaborating closely with the director to craft a distinct visual language for each project. My primary objective is always to serve the narrative through visual storytelling while collaborating with all departments to successfully communicate the emotional essence of the script on the screen.

I'm currently part of the Find Your People Program, a mentorship and development program created by Issa Rae's management company, Color Creative. I was selected as one of the four cinematographers out of 1500 applicants for the program's inaugural year. As part of this cohort, I will be working as the cinematographer on a short film fully funded by the program.
