Born in Brasília, where he lived until he was 22 years old. He started taking photographs in 1979 and became a professional photographer in 1984. From the beginning, he strived to research and reach results where technique was as important as artistic expression and creativity.

In order to develop as a photographer he moved to São Paulo, Brazil's commercial capital, in August 1988, where he worked in several photographic studios in advertising, whilst always maintaining a preoccupation with the artistic side of photography. Testament to that is the fact that he always tried to combine both aspects - the artistic and the commercial - in his work either by employing unconventional research techniques or methods of production in his commercial work, or by using, where possible, the income from his commercial work to support his artistic endeavour, which was show-cased in exhibitions and publications.

Since 1987 he has participated in several solo and group exhibitions in Brazil and abroad, among them the XXI Bienal de São Paulo and has several national and international awards.

From January to August 1991 he co-coordinated a centre for research, portfolio assembling and exhibitions at the Collectors Gallery in São Paulo.

In 1992, conquered a share of the highly competitive professional photography market in São Paulo, where he published photographic essays on several newspapers and magazines. He also worked on commission for advertising companies.

From 1993 to 1994 he taught photography at Escola Panamericana de Arte at São Paulo, a major art school in Brazil.
