Born in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1986, I graduated in Film at FAAP (São Paulo, Brazil) and am M. A. in Romance Studies (Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, Germany). 

In 2005 I lived in Melbourne, Australia, where I studied Social Communication, Fine Arts, Animation, Creative Writing and Film & TV Production at Deakin University. I also volunteered at the Melbourne Intl' Film Festival and worked in the Australian feature film Rats and Cats.

 

I was graphic artist in the Brazilian feature films Família Vende Tudo, Eu e Meu Guarda-Chuva and O Roubo da Taça, (winner of the Kikito for Best Art Direction at the 2016 Gramado Film Festival) and Mar de Dentro.

I began working with classical music at the Festival Música Nova as assistant coordinator (2007) and producer (2008). I then worked in the pedagogical department of the Campos do Jordão Intl' Winter Festival in its 40th (2009) and 41st (2010) editions, under direction of Santa Marcelina Cultura.

 

After receiving a scholarship to study at the Goethe Institut Berlin in 2009, I moved to Germany in 2010. I was assistant producer of the 16th Festival der Projektgruppe Neue Musik and assistant of the artistic coordination at the 22nd Musikfest Bremen. I became M. A. in Romance Studies at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg in 2013, with a thesis on the Brazilian films Elite Squad and Elite Squad 2.

 

Back in São Paulo, I co-founded the Marimba Collective, which offers graphic design, audiovisual production and photography for classical music. 

Since 2017 I am often assigned by EMESP Tom Jobim (São Paulo State Music School) as interpreter for groups and soloists during their stay in São Paulo, among which composer and saxophonist Ted Nash, the Juilliard School of Music, the American Brass Quintet, the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.

In March 2020 I co-founded and am since co-host and graphic designer of the Marimba Podcast, where we talk about classical music in a light and fun way. 

 

A foreign language enthusiast, I am fluent in Portuguese, English, German and Spanish; I have intermediate knowledge of Italian, French and Russian; and have a basic knowledge of Dutch and Japanese. I am currently learning Arabic.

In 2021 I created the project A Key do Inglês, through which I offer tips, recommendations and explanations about the English language via Instagram, Facebook and a website. Apart from being the central character of the project, I also produce and post all of its content, whether graphic, audiovisual or textual. 

Apart from co-hosting the podcast and managing A Key do Inglês, I currently work as freelance writer, translator and graphic designer, and teach English and German privately.
