Hi there! I'm a designer focused on Motion Design. For a while, I worked in agencies, production companies, and a game studio. This last experience gave me a unique perspective on how videos can drive business growth. I have worked alongside designers, producers, business analysts, software engineers, and everyone in between.

I graduated from the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE), in Brazil, with a bachelor’s degree in Design, and I spent one year at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) studying Motion Media Design.

Besides my hometown Caruaru, I've lived in Savannah-GA, New York-NY on the beautiful Manhattan Island, and São Paulo.

I'm now a freelancer working under the alias of NDF Studio. "NDF" stands for "no dead frames", something that Austin Shaw, a former professor of mine, always used to say when he was doing design critiques, and it also stands for "N-Dimensional". I believe it encompasses the aesthetic identity of my work - or the work I aspire to do. I enjoy exploring energetic colors, delicate compositions, and shapes that create visual textures. Check out how those elements come across on my experiments page.

I'm also the Creative Development chair of SIGGRAPH 2022 where I manage projects for trailers, make sure videos are on brand, and help in the production of full showreels like Computer Animation Festival and Papers Fast Forward. The committee I lead is at the intersection of Marketing, Conference Management, contractors, and other Program Chairs. SIGGRAPH receives close to 20,000 attendees from all over the globe and I only realized the complexity of an event like this when I joined the committee. I admire my colleagues from the committee very much and learn a lot from every interaction with them.
