I love what I do.

I love the creative process.

I love art in all of its forms: ideas, stories, music. Anything can be art.

I love the challenge of learning new things and look for that challenge each and every second of my life.

I love getting to know new and interesting people and listening to their stories.

I love my two wonderful kids and my wife, and playing my guitar with them during sunset on my porch.

I love the randomness of where new ideas come from and that they can come from anywhere.

I love teaching and learning. I want to do both for the rest of my life. I studied at The Creative Circus in Atlanta, and it was a wonderful and intense learning period of my life. Since then I’ve loved working at AlmapBBDO, and I’ve loved working as a Creative Director in a new shop, where we had to start all from scratch.

I love to have had the chance to live out three times already. They all have changed me for the better.

With all of these amazing experiences, I also love to think that my best work is still to come and it’s just around the corner.

I was part of CPB Boulder team for one and a half year, when in January 2017 I was invited to join the new team at CPB Miami.

And I'm thrilled to be part of this legendary place.

Let's work.

 

 

And I feel very grateful to have been recognized by international awards over the years.

Here are some of the special ones:

• "Top 10 Most Awarded Campaigns" by Creativity Awards Report for Volkswagen Trucks

• "Top 10 Most Awarded Ads" by Gunn Report for Akatu Favela Ad

• "Top 20 Most Awarded Campaigns" by Gunn Report for Pedigree

• "Most Awarded Art Director" by The Brazilian Advertising Festival 

 

Here are some more, from the most prestigious awards:
