Hello. Thanks for visiting. I'm currently Executive Creative Director at Velocity, a DDB start-up agency with offices in NY and LA that creates Global and Regional work for brands like Johnson's, Band-Aid, Neutrogena, Aveeno, and Kraft Foods.
My passion is to create and develop high-performance, innovative ideas and I had the privilege to do it with brands and agencies I admire in the US, Europe and LATAM like VMLY&R and 360i in NY; Leo Burnett Chicago; Ogilvy and Africa Sao Paulo; McCann Portugal and Brazil.
Some of my main clients included: Allstate, AMC Networks, Canon, Coca-Cola, GM, Kellogg's, Legoland, NBC Universal, Nestlé, P&G, Unilever, United Nations, Volvo, YouTube.
When I'm not writing for advertising, I'm writing for something else. So far, 3 rock albums with my band, one music video for some other guys' band that won an MTV Video Music Awards; a pair of short movies and one full-length documentary.
I have dual citizenship, Brazilian and Italian, and a US Residency/Green Card, but I believe the best minds and ideas have no borders. If you'd like to throw some ideas around, feel free to get in touch: email@example.com. Thanks again.
