Los Angeles, CA, USA
I have being involved in different project fields. Marketing, advertising, photography, graphic design, ux design and lately arduino prototype. I am originally from Brazil, where I graduated in Social Communication at ESPM-SP. After school I worked for 5 years at a retail group with different segments. The work consisted in direct and manage all the communication assets for the group, creating strategies; coordinating an ad agency; designing products and services.

During the same period, I created Phyton, active since 2007 in Brazil. The store became one of the top sneaker shops in Brazil and supported the local scene of music, arts and urban sports and brought to Brazil the sneaker culture selling the top brands limited edition releases.

Today I am in Los Angeles enhancing my design skills and focusing on the visual and interactive aspects of communication, such as identity system, user experience design and technology. I experiment from paper and pen, pencil and ink to Adobe tools and arduino.
