Sobre mí
I write things. It’s what I do for a living. It’s what I’ve been doing for the last 16 years. First, I started writing codes. I was a self-taught web developer in my teens so my first job, naturally, was in a digital agency.

My curiosity led me to Advertising. Now as a copy writer. And I did the whole path: unpaid internship, tight deadlines, low budget, overtime working, sleepless nights, presentations, pitches, pizzas, huge campaigns, weekend work, pre-pro meetings, film shoots, awards, parties, more sleepless nights… you should know.

Then, in 2010, a UK translation company contacted me for a job. A few weeks later, I got another job. And other companies just started to find me on LinkedIn. Hey, I thought, I think I’m good at that too. :)

Now I’m divided in two. I'm half a senior copywriter to do what I love the most: come up with ideas, write scripts, write content, write copy, manifestos, headlines, and taglines. And half a creative translator to localize global brands campaigns and creative content to the Brazilian market.

During this time, I also got married and had two little boys. If life fuels creativity, I'm doing my part to keep writing good things.


EXPERIENCE:
I’ve already worked for quite a lot of brands, from a local pâtisserie to a global Silicon Valley company. Some industries I've worked for include automotive, aviation/airline, education, electronics, energy, engineering (including logistics and transportation), entertainment & media, fashion, FMCG (from mineral water to seafood to cleaning products), finance & economics, home improvement & interior design, hospitality & tourism, IT, jewellery & watches, luxury goods & lifestyle, marketing, medical & healthcare, retail, and sports.
