    I love design, entrepreneurship and education, I believe that these things are capable of transforming people's lives through experience. That's who I am, a designer, entrepreneur and teacher.

    I started my career as a designer in 2005, at 19 I began my path as an entrepreneur and in 2009 I founded OPZ, a design office focused in identity design. We won a few awards, like IDEA Brasil, worked with great companies and best of all, met a bunch of people with purpose. In 2011 I was invited to teach in the same course I graduated from, and there I found my love for teaching and for the prospect of inspiring people. I started Petrikór in 2018, when I reevaluated my values and purpose.
    I believe that design and entrepreneurship together can transform the world as long as it transforms the way companies and people interact.
    Through all of my path, what matters the most to me are the people I've met.

    I live in the intersection of design, illustration, music and filmmaking.

    While still in college I co-founded a design firm and after graduating, I joined OPZ and later moved on to Petrikór. I also co-founded CTRL with Gabriel Macohin, a company dedicated to inspiring artists to be better and more active.
    My illustration and animation work has been featured in books, blogs and selected curated online galleries.
    I have a (slightly) unhealthy love for videogames, small synthesisers, 90s sneakers and Japanese culture.
    You can usually find me fiddling away at my OP-Z, working on personal projects or just generally doing too many things at once.
    You can see some of my personal work here. Here are some of the things I love. And some inspiration.

    I'm a bit different (from the other guys here), I love statistics, but graduated in Psychology. I worked with Marketing for many years in the most basic area possible: market research. After meeting with a lot of people who didn't know what to do with the data, I set my sails towards consulting. At the end of the day, I found in Finance the tool I needed to bring together the three areas and today, I'm a consultant for companies that knows how to talk to people.
    On this path between research and consultancy I met Gabriel and Doi and following a rule of mine: always be near people who are better than yourself and who can teach you something new, I've been inserting myself in this group. Here I'm part of the not-so-creative part, but focusing on something that everybody wants: results.

    Who am I? Well, first of all I'm a hugely curious person.
    I live and breathe photography, a fortunate discovery during my teen years while living in Japan.

    A love so strong that led me through inimaginable paths so far.
    In 2008 I started photographing professionally, with a focus on publicity, product and food photography. In 2011 I began my career as a photography teacher at the same faculty I graduated from, teaching in Marketing, Publicity and Advertising and Visual Arts, as well as in other specialized courses.
    In 2014 I fulfilled a big dream! Build a photography studio where I could work on my projects as well as rent the space out for other photographers, for events, meetings and exhibitions, called Maquinótico.
    Now, 5 years later, we closed the book on Maquinótico, starting a new chapter next to people driven by curiosity and love for what they do.
    Discover, learn, dream, practice and breathe. A continuous cycle that moves us and transforms us daily.
