Hey stranger, looks like something went terribly wrong in your life, and you landed on this website. But since you’re here, I’m just going to talk a little about myself: I’m an independent Creative Director and Filmmaker based in New York. I’m Portuguese, was born in Germany and have been living in the US since 2013. I strive to create meaningful projects that positively impact people’s lives. I’ve worked for places including Wieden+Kennedy, Droga5, VICELAND, Anomaly, Mother and many others. Someone also thought it was a good idea to let me teach at Miami Ad School and Berghs School of Communication. My work has won some shiny trophies, was exhibited at the International Center of Photography and featured on ABC News, The Guardian, Mashable, Buzzfeed and Huffington Post. I'm obsessed with people, their quirks, passions, and dreams. The weirder, the better.
