I was born and raised in Brazil and always dreamed of telling stories to a global audience. I've been writing and Kickstarting projects (films, comics, TV) ever since 2012 to audiences worldwide. AMA!
Back in 2011 I had to leave California after a Master's degree in Film to go back to my home country Brazil. Instead of responsibly falling back on Advertising like most film making graduates do over there I set out to pursue my dream of making a living as a storyteller. I set out to write and direct my very first feature film for less than $10K while adapting a feature length screenplay into a graphic novel to be released two years later. I crowdfunded both projects. I was determined to find myself my own global audience no matter what.
Almost eight years later, and over 20 successful crowdfunding campaigns in both Brazil and the US, I found a passionate fan base that follows my work whether it's comics, film or my latest project - a board game. Ask me anything about making comics, writing for Film and TV, being an entrepreneur, a PR enthusiast, a passionate storyteller, a Brazilian Churrasco master chef and a determined fool that dreams for a living.
