Bio
I am a filmmaker, editor, and academic based in Scotland. Originally from Brazil, I hold a BA in History from Rio de Janeiro State University and an MA in Peace and Conflict Studies from the University of Turin. After over seven years as an in-house editor at TV Globo in Brazil, I graduated from Kino Eyes Film Masters, with a full-degree Erasmus Mundus scholarship and mobility in three European Universities: Screen Academy Scotland (UK), Baltic Film School (Estonia) and Lusofona University (Portugal). In 2021, I started a PhD in film practice and became a film & screen studies tutor at Edinburgh College of Art.  I directed the short documentary Newcomers (2013), commissioned by the Centre Vidéo de Bruxelles (CVB) and edited many TV shows broadcast internationally and short films, which have been screened at festivals in South America and Europe. I am an alumnus of Berlinale Talents and was recently selected for Bridging the Gap, the Scottish Documentary Institute's short film development programme.
