Let's put it this way: I am 100% Brazilian, the name is the only Japanese factor I inherited. The creativity I bring to work is fully bred in Brazil, where I started my career 13 years ago - and my love for advertising has been growing ever since.

I chose my career by crossing out the subjects I knew I wasn't good at back in school. In the end, Advertising was almost the only thing left on the table. It surely wasn't the wisest way of deciding but it definitely worked out fine. I mean, I am still trying to figure out if advertising has chosen me. One thing I know for sure, It has been so much fun.  

Besides advertising, I’m also a photography lover and a travel addict. I love playing football, but don't waste your time talking to me about it; you will be disappointed - I know nothing about our national sport. We can talk about music, podcasts, cinema, pop culture, surfing, and skateboarding instead.
