Creative and artistic pursuits have always been my interest from a young age, and at only thirteen years old, my career journey began with graphic design in Brazil. A few years later, I realized I wanted to work in the animation/VFX industry, so I decided to go to an art school and get a degree in multimedia graphics. However, our plans sometimes change direction, and I ended up working in the film and television industry where I have acquired over 15 years of experience.
I came to Canada in 2006. Years later, I got the opportunity to work as a cinematographer on the web-series “The Last Fall of Ashes,” which was such a success that I ended up winning an award for best cinematography at the LA Web Festival.
I got so excited about the award I won that a year later I applied to study the digital and film production program at the Langara College. During the program, I wrote and shot my first short film, The Passage, which was screened at film festivals around the world, including the Madrid International Film Festival, and also won an award at the Canada International Film Festival.
I was so happy with all my accomplishments that a year later I decided to found Doc ME! Productions. My goal was to learn more about business, leadership, production and clients relation. And that’s what I’ve been doing for the past five years. I have successfully produced and directed several projects for companies.
Apart from having a passion for creating highly creative and striking videos, I also love sports! I curl and have a dream that my team will represent Brazil in international competitions in the near future…do we want to win some medals? Yes, for sure! I also love photography and my photographs have been featured at the Gibsons Public Art Gallery, Vivo Media Art Center, and other local galleries in British Columbia.
