Hi, I’m a multidisciplinary creative director, art director, designer, a father and a husband. Ex Meta (global creative director, UK), Ogilvy (UK, BR), MullenLowe (UK), DM9DDB (BR). Currently at Publicis One Touch, Hamburg, I’m a global creative director on Nivea. Whilst working alongside many great people I’m constantly learning and growing. I’ve been lucky enough to be recognised in awards shows such as the Cannes Lions, D&AD, the One Show and many others. I’m a Brazilian and British citizen. Find me on Linkedin here
