I was born in Fortaleza in the late 70’s, I studied administration and worked in a family business management for a long time. Living in São Paulo, I decided to take a course in photography. It was two years of college, where I was able to exercise my photographic look, which got aligned with the technical knowledge. Since my graduation in December 2017, the world serves as my inspiration! The places with their diversified cultural expressions, and their peculiar landscapes, inspire me more and more! Today, much of my time is devoted to photography. I became a photographer by passion.
