Hello. Thanks for visiting. I'm currently the Executive Creative Director of Velocity, Omnicom’s brand new integrated agency overseeing all the work for global accounts like Johnson’s, Band-Aid, Neutrogena, Aveeno and Kraft Foods.
Before that, I worked at VMLY&R with brands like New Balance, NBA, AMC, Legoland and at 360i New York as Group Creative Director for Absolut, Canon, Coca-Cola, Nestlé, NBC Universal, Youtube and more.
I was also Executive Creative Director at Leo Burnett Chicago working with brands for the global, general and multicultural market in a group that included: P&G, Kellogg's, Purina, Allstate Insurance and Mexico Tourism Board.
I came to the US after 3 years working as a Creative Director at Ogilvy Brazil in Sao Paulo, where had the honor in helping them win the Agency of The Year Award at Cannes 2013 and top 3 for Best Agency in two other years.
I was also Creative Director at Africa Sao Paulo and part of the team that won the 2nd Best Agency at the Cyber Lions.
I had a couple of nice experiences at McCann: 3 years in Europe in Lisbon and 2 years more in Sao Paulo.
I'm Brazilian-Italian and I started to work in Rio, at the age of 15 as an assistant to my dad, a photographer.
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.
So, if you'd like to throw some ideas around, get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks again.
