What I’m all about…
Express my passion to music, movies and arts through my photography

You can tell I’m a Brazilian when…
I can’t skip my cafezinho in the afternoon or when I dress my country hat. I keep many of the habits I used to have as a kid living in Valadares, a small city in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil’s country side.

A typical day in your hometown…
When I’m in Valadares, I spend all my time in the botecos [pitoresque neighborhood bars], eating torresmo [pork rind] and drinking cachaça with friends. There’s no much else to do and that’s the beauty of it!

A Brazilian artist who changed the way I see the world…
My antie Janaína Mello Landini. First time I had contact with arts was through her work and it means a lot to me. After that, I realized I’d like to work on this field and expand my horizons.
