Born in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1986, I graduated in Film at FAAP (São Paulo, Brazil) and hold a Master's Degree in Romance Studies from the 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.
In classical music, I was assistant coordinator (2007) and producer (2008) of Festival Música Nova; assistant to the pedagogical department of the Campos do Jordão Intl' Winter Festival in 2009 and 2010. 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 received my Master's Degree in Romance Studies from the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg in 2013, with a thesis on the Brazilian films Elite Squad and Elite Squad 2.
Since 2017 I work as a freelance interpreter at EMESP Tom Jobim (São Paulo State Music School) for groups, institutions, and soloists such as composer and saxophonist Ted Nash, the Juilliard School of Music, the American Brass Quintet, the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.
In pandemic times, I co-founded the Marimba Podcast, which presents classical music to the general audience in a fun, easy-to-grasp way; and the personal project A Key do Inglês, through which I offer tips and simple explanations about the English language.
A foreign language enthusiast, I am fluent in Portuguese, English, German and Spanish, and knowledgeable in six other languages, including Italian, French, Russian, and Arabic.
