So far...

Passionate about narratives since the days of shared diaries with childhood friends, I felt that I should practice writing professionally when, as an adult, I found myself strongly silenced by the dominant stories in Literature, Audiovisual, Theater... and especially in Education.

Looking around, notice: millions more are being made invisible by the dominant narratives. What to do about it?

I initially graduated in Chemistry (IFF) - a profession I exercised in the field of research at UFRJ until 2020 - and I feel that this performance nurtured me with a critical sense , fundamental for my understanding as an Educator - graduated in Pedagogy (UERJ). Education, in turn, strengthens me so that I can affirm myself as a Writer today , because what are stories if not powerful pedagogical resources loaded with MEANINGS, MEMORY and EMOTIONS that cross each one of us in a particular way?


Since then I have been dedicating myself academically - postgraduate studies in Literature, Arts and Contemporary Thought (PUC) - and professionally to the multiple uses of writing as a screenwriter and playwright , mainly without ever abandoning the affectionate look that I perfect through the exercise of film direction .

To this end, I have been participating in various training processes, where I highlight the essential contribution of Centro Afrocarioca de Cinema Zózimo Bulbul, Rede Globo, Roteiraria Escola and Instituto de Cinema, which make me a multidisciplinary agent of words.
