Born and raised in São Paulo, the largest Brazilian city, but currently based in São Sebastião, a smalll town of the Brazilian southeastern coast, I started photographing as a child and became professional at age 23. I currently work only outdoors, even for female photo shoots. For nature photography I use the most diverse capture modes, making not only terrestrial as well as underwater, aerial and interactive 360​​° images.

With photos published in 5 books of different authors, in December 2013 I published the first book of my own, called O Brasil da Copa (sold out). In November of 2020 I published my second book, The Most Beautiful Trails of Patagonia, which can be purchased via this website.

Over the years my photos have been exhibited in several cities such as Milan (Italy), São Paulo, Manaus, Recife, Rio de Janeiro (National Museum), Angra dos Reis and Santo André.

In parallel with photography I was a PADI scuba diving instructor, from age 18 to 38, specialized in deep diving, wreck, cave, nitrox (enriched air) and, of course, underwater photography.
