Recently started Kawalab.co, a hub located in Miami and working based on two fronts: creative freelance contracts for ad agencies offering a great net of creatives under my Creative Direction, and engaged on innovation and brand building for startup projects.

Prior to that, had a stint as CCO and Partner at Nobox digital agency in Miami, where I’ve worked on leveraging creative strategy thinking into a social media formatted agency for clients such as Marriott Hotels, Amerant Bank, Gatorade, Pepsi, Netflix among others.

As a side project, I also have been partnering with Chuck Porter on Ventures on start-up companies, being responsible for their Brand Strategies and Design concepts. This experience has expanded my knowledge on entrepreneurial mindset and its nimble yet highly crafted processes.

Prior to being CCO at Nobox, I’ve worked for 4 years at Crispin Porter Bogusky, started in Boulder as Global Creative leader for Infiniti Cars and then joined the Miami office as Executive Creative Director for Letgo, Bauducco, and Embraer.

In Brazil I invested most of my professional time - 8 years, at AlmapBBDO, and created award-winning works for Volkswagen, Volkswagen Trucks, Audi, Visa, Havaianas, Pedigree and Bayer.

Back some years prior to that, I’ve worked on building and structuring the whole creative and production departments of Mohallem / Artplan, an indie agency from Eugenio Mohallem, one of the most relevant creative leaders in Brazil.

Other top creative shops that I also had the chance to be part of their team: DM9DDB, Africa, Leo Burnett, where I produced work for Honda, InBev, Itau, Mercedes-Benz, Fnac, Sony, among others.
