Bio:
I am a filmmaker, editor and academic based in Scotland, particularly interested in documentary filmmaking and migrant cinema. 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 tutor in film & screen studies at Edinburgh College of Art.  I directed the short documentary Newcomers (2013), commissioned by the Centre Vidéo de Bruxelles (CVB) and edited a number of 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.
