I'm a filmmaker and photojournalist based in Portland, Oregon.

I'm worked as reporter/producer for the mid-Missouri NPR affiliate KBIA. Other past stops include the Columbia Missourian, the Student Press Law Center and the Associated Press. My work has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal.

I'm originally from São Paulo, Brazil, but I've called a bunch of places home including Georgia, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Missouri. I prefer to take my camera out of the city and explore the the places in between. You can usually find me in rural Missouri towns or at the nearest zoo.

I like telling all kinds of stories in all kinds of ways; whether it's with still photography, video, audio, graphics, writing or some mix of it all. For me, the medium is driven by the nature of each narrative. You can see my resume here.

Outside of journalism, I like waffles, Scrabble and flightless birds.

I'm available for assignments in the U.S. and Brazil.
