I left Brazil in 2014 to pursue a degree at DigiPen Institute of Technology in Redmond. In 2018, I graduated with a BFA in Digital Art and Animation and was given a valedictorian award!

I started out as an animator, but grew increasingly fascinated with the technical challenges of the art pipeline. As a result, I ended up tailoring my skills towards tech art in order to keep in touch both sides, and bridge the gap between them. I enjoy helping others and  I love making tools to improve artist workflows.

My experience in the industry has been incredibly rewarding so far, and I'm honored to have worked at companies like Microsoft and Amazon.

I have many different hobbies for when I'm not making awesome video games. I exercise 6 days a week and love all things plant related. If I'm not out hiking or hitting the gym you will probably find me tending to my garden, drawing my D&D characters or playing video games. 

I have a passion for adventure and I love to go on solo trips every once in a while! I also make some wicked raspberry jam and pancakes.
