Where everything starts

  • The nature and the people of Santa Catarina (South Brazil), where I was born, were my source of deep inspiration since childhood. Those mountains up to Florianópolis, one of the most beautiful islands of the world, brought together a variety of cultures since the Descobrimentos, leaving a reminiscent of unique people. That's where my great grandfather found his home after leaving Italy in 1890 escaping the present misery.

Fafe, Portugal


Time, places and circumstances

  • Many special moments were experienced through this journey within 17 countries, while being actively volunteering & coordinating at Food For Life Global and managing one of the first vegetarian restaurants in Lisbon for 4 years. Meanwhile I kept on working as a freelancer for Branding & Communication Design and being un babbo for two amazing boys.  

Rishikesh, India.


Voyage to the unknown

  • During high school, while spending time as a trainee at the City Library helped me to develop an unexpected taste for reading. Gradually, I got introduced to Buddhism and the Vedic Sastras, which at the time connected me with an ancient India through its literature, music and spirituality in a very special way. This influenced me to drop out from my Communication course at University later on for some time and enter into a voyage for the unknown.

Time, places and circumstances

  • Simple but special moments had passed by during a journey throughout 17 countries, while being able to be an active volunteer & coordinator at Food For Life Global and managing one of the first 3 vegetarian restaurants in Lisbon for 4 years. Meanwhile I kept working as a freelancer with Branding & Communication Design and being un babbo of two amazing boys.


As time was going by...

  • ...around Brazil, Italy and Portugal, it was Lisboa that conquered my heart and that's where my family and I are established at the moment. I am currently working as a Visual Designer with some special projects in the social, ecological, musical and professional fields.
