I want to make movies that challenge your understanding of the world.
✍🏻 Writing the first one right now.
If I can explore some of the biggest myths surrounding human behaviour, myths that have been covertly plaguing our civilization for millennia, but doing so very subtly, underneath a rich cinematic experience, filled with ideas and feelings you've never thought about or felt before, I will be successful.
A mixed-race kid of the 90s and of a deeply impoverished drug-addicted hippie and punk couple, descendant of native Brazilians and Spanish slaves, survivor of 15+ years of domestic violence and 7+ years of health issues, class-discriminated and police-abused, if you looked at my picture and intro and thought "privileged white male", my first challenge to your understanding of the world has been accomplished. You're welcome — that projection couldn't be farther from the truth.
My story is quite unusual and more painful than you can imagine but, at my core, I have always been and will always be an ever-curious student of cinema, communication, and human behaviour; a natural storyteller, musician and problem-solver; and a collaborator at heart. A realist, with a pinch of optimism, who never gives up.
