My professional background goes back to 1987 when I started working for Publicity Agencies in the Greater Sao Paulo area designing logos, corporate brand identity, technical catalogs, adds for magazines, and exhibition stands.
The fine work producing construction documents for exhibition stands provided me the skills to start working for Interior Design offices from 1992 to 1994 designing a mix of residential, commercial, and high end wood furniture projects.
From 1994 to 1999 I had the privilege to study Architecture and Urban Planning later working as a professional Architect until 2001 when I immigrated to Canada.
This hybrid background gives me the tools to virtually design anything I am challenged or inspired to. My portfolio shows good examples of traditional and visionary architecture, urban fixtures, interior design, furniture design, lighting fixtures and graphic design.
Every time I start a new project all these elements become part of the creative process helping to create pieces that are not only environmentally, ergonomically and aesthetically interesting but also have a strong commercial appeal.
In Canada, I have been working as a Project Designer planning and designing interior spaces, coordinating production and installation of high-end custom cabinetry and mill-work for a variety of high profile condos, commercial and institutional buildings.
