I am a Storyteller, Designer of Social Experiences, and Creative Technologist.
I use design and technology to create dances for the soul, choreographing human communication. I hold a Masters at the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU, and have 8+ years of experience directing videos, designing interactive projects, architecting story worlds for several brands and cultural institutions in Brazil and U.S.
